Irish soda bread is best served the same day it is made. If you have leftovers, it makes nice toast in the morning.
Updated Jan 14, 2021

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Betty Crocker™ All-Purpose Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir together flour blend, baking soda, baking powder, salt and xanthan gum. Stir in raisins; set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat sugar, butter and egg with electric mixer on medium speed about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually stir in flour blend mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour blend mixture.
  • 4
    Place on surface lightly sprinkled with flour blend. Knead gently 4 or 5 times. Place dough on cookie sheet; pat into circle about 1 1/2 inches thick. With sharp knife, cut X across loaf about 1/2 inch deep. Bake at 450°F 5 minutes; reduce heat to 350°F, and bake 25 minutes longer or until golden brown and bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing, about 4 hours. Serve with butter and jam, if desired.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • tip 2
    The technique used in this recipe differs from that of traditional soda bread--beating the sugar, butter and egg helps develop structure in the gluten-free version.
