St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! This day may not be traditionally Irish, as many Americans use it for an excuse to party, drink, and wear green, you can still celebrate the Irish by culinary means. Many Irish friends of mine are always discussing the delicious treat of Irish Soda Bread, so we thought we would share a vegan version with you! This is a great treat by itself or serve with our Vegan Irish Stew. Have a blast this St Patrick’s Day and even if you do party your hearts out, remember Irish Soda Bread makes for a great hangover delight.
Vegan Irish Soda Bread
Prep Time: 20 Minutes Bake Time: 45 Minutes
1 Cup Organic Soy Milk (or other non dairy milk)
3/4 Cup Organic Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 Cup Organic Unbleached Flour
1/2 Cup Raisins
2 Tbsp Water
1 1/2 Tbsp Organic Earth Balance Margarine
1 1/2 Tbsp Ener-G Egg Replacer (or Applesauce)
1 Tbsp Vinegar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Basking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
Preheat your oven to 375 F. In a regular size loaf pan, grease the bottom with a little extra margarine or oil. If you are using Egg Replacer, follow the directions on the box for 1 Egg and whisk together. In a bowl, combine the soy milk and vinegar and let stand for 5 minutes (it will start to curdle). In a large mixing bowl, combine the wheat flour, white flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in softened Earth Balance and combine together. Add the Egg Replacer or applesauce to the soy milk and vinegar. Now slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix slowly. Add the raisins and mix, but do not over mix. Pour dough into the loaf pan and bake for 35-45 minutes.
