Irresistibly beautiful!

Ingredients

3 c organic flour
1 T baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/3-1/2 c organic pure cane sugar
1 egg
2 c buttermilk*

*2 T apple cider vinegar and 2 c minus 2 T sweetened almond milk

My process

Set the oven to 325.

I get out my two cup wet measure, put 2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar in it, then add enough almond milk to hit the two cup line. This is set aside.

The acv makes the almond milk look funky.  It does that, don't worry.

In my favorite mixing bowl, I measure out all the dry ingredients and stir until it looks evenly mixed. Then I crack the egg into the “buttermilk” and whisk it until well blended.

Immediately after whisking, pour wet mixture into the dry all at once.

This is slowly poured into the dry mix. Then I stir the contents of the mixing bowl until the lumps are practically gone.

The loaf pan I use gets swabbed with Smart Balance nonGMO buttery spread. It could be coated with cooking spray but I like the way the butter soaks into the crust.

Spread the butter evenly.

Pour the soda bread batter into the loaf pan. Stick the loaf pan in the oven. Set the timer for 70 minutes.

The dough isn't as runny as cake batter but isn't as tough as regular bread dough.

Fabulously irresistible bread!

Can you spot the BHE?  This bread is so irresistible, he couldn't wait for me to take the picture.

It is dense and moist. I have very little trouble cutting it into slices. The BHE prefers this for sandwich bread.

While it is not a traditional Irish soda bread recipe, it is easy to make and the flavor is irresistible.

    Looks very good. I may try and see if I can figure out a good egg substitute so I can make it. Does it turn out better in a pan like yours than a traditional loaf pan?

    Actually, that is a traditional loaf pan. I probably had butter on my fingers and struggled to take that picture with my phone. I hope you do find a good egg substitute. I know we use applesauce quite a bit to replace eggs in some of our cooking. I’ll have to get up a couple of those recipes soon. Good luck!
