Irish Soda Bread

Makes 1 loaf
Time 40 min
This gluten-free version of the classic Irish soda bread is flavorful and crumbly, rather like an oversized scone, and best eaten within a day or two of baking. Serve with a smear of Irish butter, if you like.

Method

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly coat a 6-inch round nonstick pan with oil and dust with extra rice flour. If using a cast iron pan, cut out a 10" square of parchment paper to line the pan — there's no need to oil/flour the paper. Set aside.

Combine buttermilk, raisins (or currants), butter and egg in a medium bowl.

Slowly pour buttermilk mixture over flour mixture and stir until combined. The batter will be sticky and thick.

Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.

Slice bread and serve warm or set aside to cool to room temperature and serve.
