Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

I'm not usually a Soda Bread fan, but the fact that there are caraway seeds and currants in this gives it a nice flavour. I got this from the Living Without website. It promotes gluten free foods: This would be nice for a St. Patties' Day brunch!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400'F.
  2. Lightly dust your baking sheet with flour. Plump the currants by covering with hot water for 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt together.
  4. With your fingers, pinch the coconut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course sand.
  5. Add the currants and caraway seeds fluffing the mixture up as you add them.
  6. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and add 1/2 cup of the buttermilk. Mix the dry ingredients into the milk, adding more milk as needed to create a soft dough. Better to have this mixture wet then dry.
  7. Dust the counter with flour and turn the dough onto the flour and gently knead adding more flour to prevent it from sticking. Shape the dough into a flat 6" loaf.
  8. Place on your prepared cookie sheet and sprinkle the top with more flour and cut an X in the top with a sharp knife.
  9. Place in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Cool on a wire rack.
  11. Serve warm with Vegan margarine or your favourite jam.
  12. Bon Appetit!
