Irish Soda Bread #Recipe

I’ve never made bread before and I’m trying to eat healthier this year. Aren’t we all after 2020? In any case, I decided my first attempt at bread would be a vegan version of Irish soda bread in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I had my doubt as to how it would go, but it was incredibly easy to make and delicious. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of raisins (black or gold)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (my favorite is I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Make vegan buttermilk by adding lemon juice to vanilla soy milk.
  3. Toss raisins and walnuts in on tablespoon of flour. This will help the raisins from falling to the bottom of the bread while baking.
  4. In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients (2 cups of all purpose flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda)
  5. With clean hands, rub vegan butter into dry ingredients until completely incorporated.
  6. Add the vegan buttermilk you made, walnuts, and raisins and mix well with a spatula.
  7. Put remaining flour on a clean surface and remove dough from the bowl.
  8. Knead and add flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Form into a ball and cut an X on the top.
  9. Bake 45-50 minutes at 375 degrees F
  10. Let cool & enjoy!
