There really is nothing better than the warm smell of brad baking in the oven on a chilly day.
Well, it's chilly today. In fact, it was 80 degrees a few days ago and now its 40. I swear Virginia has bi-polar when it comes to weather. We go through all the seasons in a day sometimes!
If you can recall, last week I shared my Irish Lamb Beef Stew and there is seriously nothing better than having fresh baked bread to dunk in it. Like, soak up ALLLL the broth kind.
But this is even better, because I made this version of Irish soda bread with paleo baking flour and natural sweetness from honey.
I don't eat bread very often these days, but I was in the mood to bake. I also wanted to make this to fit my healthy lifestyle needs (per usual). And it came out PERFECT.
Crusty, warm, pull-apart-and-dip-good!
What's even better about this bread? It's a no knead, gluten free, no yeast, done in an hour kind of bread!
Im not much of a baker, so this was perfect! I did some research on the traditional Irish Soda Bread and found a great recipe from King Arthur Flour and adapted it from there.
This is seriously some good eats and perfect to split amongst your family while enjoying some Irish Lamb Stew and gearing up for St. Patrick's Day!
Recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour
This looked so good and so easy. And just the thing to give me an excuse to crack open one of my fresh jars of chokecherry jelly. But, I just tried the recipe as written and immediately saw there was no way I could add in all milk! Is there an error in the amount of flour? It seem like it should probably read 2 1/4 cups! It was WAY too runny with only about half of the liquid added -- like cake batter. And the taste of soda overpowered and ruined everything! Ideas?
Hi Nicole! I’m so sorry this didn’t work out for you! Typically with paleo flours (my experience) is that it absorbs moisture easily and my baked goods end up very dry. For this recipe, I tried to lower the flour amount from the original King Arthur recipe to compensate. If you do try this again, add more flour (a tbs or 2 at a time) until the right consistency is reached. Again, I apologize that this didn’t turn out right 🙁
