Best Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread



For me, having Celiac Disease is hardest on any holiday…I think it is the temptation of all the food that is set out to eat and I can not have most of them. Holiday’s are also hard for fear of getting sick at someone else’s house!

I am Irish, so I love Saint Patrick’s Day!

I am so happy to be able to share with you my recipe for the BEST gluten-free Irish Soda Bread!





Serves 8



2 cups gluten-free flour mix

2 tsp. xatham gum

1 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 stick of room temperature butter (1/2 cup) or ghee

2 eggs

3/4 cup milk or unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 TBS. raw honey

1 cup of currants or raisins



1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Dump all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until all the ingredients all well combined.  DO NOT OVER MIX.

3.  Dump the dough onto a terra cotta baking stone.  Shape into a circular mound .

4.  Bake for 30-45 minutes until a knife comes out clean.  Let sit 30 minutes and then eat with butter!  YUM!

    I am excited to try this recipe today but have 1 question. Should I pre heat the pizza stone before I put the dough on it????

    I just made these with coconut flour and all they did was crumbled. I tried a couple different receipts. Any advice?

      Hi Kelly, I do have some advice…and I am so glad you asked because it will help every one of my readers! Coconut is a very crumbly flour. I can’t tell you how many times I have had a flop using just coconut flour. I use a combination of flours. For example when using coconut flour I usually also use tapioca or arrowroot with it. These are very starchy flours that work well with coconut flour. Starchy flours like tapioca or arrowroot act like glue. Another flour that I like to use with coconut flour is almond flour. For example, if a recipe calls for a cup of gluten free flour I might substitute it with 1/3 cup tapioca flour, 1/3 cup coconut flour, and 1/3 cup almond flour. I hope this will be a help to you!
