This gluten free Irish soda bread is a classic and the perfect side to your St. Patrick’s Day meal. This version includes directions for a dairy free option, which would also make it vegan.
This gluten free Irish soda bread is adapted from my grandma’s recipe. Her version calls for butter, buttermilk, and regular flour. I loved it, it’s my favorite and I look forward to hers every year. My grandma’s Irish Soda Bread is hands down, one of the best you’ll ever have. Everyone has their own version. Some are more like a quick bread, and some are like my grandma’s – more like a scone/biscuit.
Since Adam and Kelsey can’t eat the original version anymore, I’ve adapted it to be gluten free and dairy free. I must say though, the version with real butter in it can’t be topped. The butter really is an important part of this dish so if you can have milk/dairy, use the real stuff.
Not that the dairy free version isn’t good. It is. It’s just not quite the same without the butter. If you’re just lactose intolerant, try it with ghee!
My grandma also makes hers with dried currants and a little bit of caraway seeds. The caraway seeds give the bread a slightly savory taste that’s really good. You can skip them if you want, but I do recommend using them. I also really love the dried currants over raisins. They’re sweet, soft, and so much better then raisins. I buy organic ones at my local co-op but you can also get them online. I usually see them this time of year at the grocery store with the raisins so check to see if your stores carries them too.
This Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread is great alongside your corned beef and cabbage. And it’s even better the next day when you toast it and serve it with my favorite ever Corned Beef Hash.
