How does Irish soda bread taste? It kind of tastes like a combination between a bread and a pretzel! Pretzels are dough boiled in baking soda, and this bread has a lot of baking soda. Soda in the name comes from the baking soda in the bread. It is kind of like sour dough too, but sour dough takes a long longer to make using yeast while gluten free Irish soda bread uses buttermilk.

What to serve gluten free Irish soda bread with:

Gluten free Irish soda bread is used for an appetizer or side carb for meals during the time period in which St. Patricks Day takes place. You can make this bread year round for any occasion, but most people do serve Irish soda bread with green beer, shepards pie, corn beef, and cabbage, etc. during the month of March.

How irish soda bread is made:

Irish soda bread without eggs is made relatively easily. You don’t have to knead the bread, so this recipe only takes about 20 minutes to make. That makes this a really quick bread recipe.

Bascially, the flour mixture needs to be combined first. This recipe uses a blend of grain free flour compared to using a grain free bread flour mix. That does make it more ingredients you need to have on hand.

Then, the liquid ingredients need to be added so that the flour sticks together. Place on a pan and cut and x on top. Then, bake!
