GF Irish Soda Bread


This Irish Soda Bread has a hint of sweetness and a crunchy crust. It is not as dense and heavy as many gluten free breads tend to be. I keep craving this bread- so I made it again tonight. It’s great for breakfast too!

I stumbled upon this recipe in a MOPS magazine recently.

Irish Soda Bread

1 1/2 cups white rice flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk*

*I have never purchased buttermilk at the store- but it is so easy to make a substitute. Place 1 tsp lemon juice in a one cup glass measurer and then fill to the 1 cup mark with milk. I usually make this first so it can sit for a while as I prep everything else.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl- I use my Kitchen Aid. Then, mix the egg and buttermilk together. Add the egg/milk mix to the dry ingredients and mix until blended but no need to over mix. Bake at 350* for 65 minutes in greased 9 inch round spring form pan.

  1. We just started the GF diet for my son about a month ago and we’re having a really hard time with bread. This looks yummy – how do you think it would turn out using all-purpose gluten free flour in place of the white rice and tapioca flours?

    • Breads are so hard! This is my favorite of all the breads I have made so far! Honestly, I don’t know how the all purpose would do. The tapioca flour adds a great texture. The white rice flour and tapioca are very cheap- compared to other options. I buy them in 4 packs off Amazon for about $10 using subscribe and save. I rarely use all purpose flour and usually use tapioca and rice flours. Feel free to email me at gfcouponer12@gmail.com anytime and we can chat more.
