Irish Eye's Were Smiling

A quick St. Patrick's Day round up. I made Corned Beef Seitan with boiled potatoes, white onions, cabbage and a couple of loaves Irish Soda Bread.  I've been making various forms of seitan for years now so making a Corned Beef version wasn't too difficult.  But I had never attempted to make Irish Soda Bread before.  I have no idea what I was waiting for.  None of the vegan Irish Soda Bread recipes I found  seemed like what I was looking for.  So I went ahead and veganized a traditional recipe. The results were - perfect!

Vegan Irish Soda Bread Recipe:

pre heat oven to 350 F.

Mix Dry Ingredients in a large bowl:
4 cups unbleached white flour (plus more as needed)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
8 oz of raisins (presoak in warm water to soften, drain before using)
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix Wet Ingredients in different bowl:
3 tablespoons melted nondairy butter (I use earth balance)
1 cup plain non dairy yogurt
1/2 cup plain seltzer water
1/2 cup plain soy milk mixed with 2 tablespoons Apple cider Vinegar

Combine wet and dry ingredients and knead together
add more unbleached white flour as needed until you have a thick, non sticky dough

Split dough into 2 equal round ball like loaves
place each loaf into a greased, floured pan.
Cut a "X" in the top of each loaf
Bake 55-60 minutes or until loaf is golden brown and tooth pick comes out clean
Serve hot or cold either way it's all good. 

Now on to some shameless self promotion!
