Irish Soda Bread

Yeast Free Soda Bread

Ok, so now that we have found a decent recipe for bread for Conor we now need to cut out the yeast.

So...options? There are not many, but luckily Irish Soda Bread is naturally yeast free. The question was could I make a soda bread that was gf/cf/sf and which still tasted good?

I took an old fashioned traditional recipe and substituted my standard gf/cf/sf substitutes.


  • 16oz gf/cf flour mix (see below)
  • 1 level teaspoon bicarbonate or soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 2 teaspoons bextartar or cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons Xylitol
  • 12 fluid ozs non dairy, non soy milk (I use hemp milk)
  • 1 Free Range Egg beaten
  • Preheat oven to 230 degrees (hot!)
  • Sift all the dry ingredients together
  • Sift again a few times to capture air in the mix
  • Mix milk and egg together
  • Make a well in centre of flour and most of the wet mix.
  • Using your hands, quickly and lightly form the mix into a ball. Add a bit more of the liquid mix if needs be.
  • When the ingredients are mixed roll the dough lightly on a floured surface.
  • Form into a Round 2" high
  • Cut a deep X across the top
  • Place on a floured baking tray
  • Bake for 5 minutes
  • Reduce temp to 180 degrees
  • Bake for a further 30-35 minutes

Flour Mix
  • 2 1/2 cups of rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch flour

The verdict?

Very very good.

Especially toasted with jam on top.

Enjoy. Stumble Delicious
