  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • 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.
  • This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
