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