Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

The best ever Irish soda bread, made with gluten free flour. 



  • Cube the butter and place in the freezer for a few minutes to keep cold. 
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Put a dusting of flour into your dutch oven and shake with the lid on. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. 
  • Remove the butter from the freezer. With your fingers work the butter into the flour until it resembled a coarse cornmeal. 
  • Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk. Fold the dough until the buttermilk is fully Incorporated. Dough will be sticky. 
  • Turn the dough onto a floured work surface. Fold the dough instead of kneading until you can form it into a round loaf. 
  • With a knife or pair of kitchen shears, make an "X" shape in the top of the dough. Don't go down too deep. 
  • Place the dough into your dutch oven. Put the lid on and into the oven for 40-45 minutes. The loaf should sound hallow when you tap on it. . 
  • Allow to cool with the lid off before removing to a cooling rack. Serve warm.


The best way to preserve leftover bread is to wrap it in foil and place in the freezer until you are ready to eat. I wouldn't recommend leaving the bread out at room temperature as it will dry out fast.
