Irish Soda Bread Biscuits :: Gluten Free with Nut, Egg, & Dairy Free Options
Well we need something to dunk in our Irish stew, don’t we?

I love the history behind traditional Irish soda bread. Just a little flour and salt with baking soda and soured milk to create a rise, it was simple meal the poor could count on.

It is one of the few times I pull caraway seeds out of my cupboard, and the flavorful warmth it gives to the bread is amazing. It goes perfect with a big spread of butter and a bowl of stew.

In keeping with the simplicity of it’s history, these biscuits go from mixing bowl to baking sheet in under 10 minutes. Leftovers can pack up with a thermos of stew for school lunch too!

  1. Whisk the flours, baking soda, baking powder, raisins, and caraway seeds in a medium mixing bowl to combine.

    Have you tried the recipe using coconut yogurt and gelatin egg substitutes?

      Hi Emily! I have! They won’t puff up quite as much since eggs give some rise to baked goods but they will still feel like bread – You could add a splash of apple cider vinegar and that might help make them puff up a little more. I hope that helps!
