The original Irish soda bread that you find in the market is not vegan as it contains dairy ingredients like butter and buttermilk along with eggs some times. So, for having a vegan version of Irish soda bread, you have got to make it at home.
With the following yeast-free recipe, you can easily prepare the vegan Irish Soda brand at home within 30 minutes of time. You can have this Irish bread with soup or if you like to have it with some dessert, you can try it out with Bechamel sauce or Maple syrup. So, let’s have a look at the recipe.
Preheat your oven at 430 Degrees Fahrenheit along with the parchment paper that is slightly greased
Take a medium-sized bowl, add soy milk and apple cider vinegar, mix them up and keep it aside for 10 minutes, by this it turns thick and works like buttermilk
Now, take a large bowl, add baking soda, 3 cups of all-purpose flour and salt and mix them up
Prepare a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour in the mixture prepared in the step 2
Now, mix all the ingredients properly, without forming any lumps in it
Once the dough is prepared, knead it for a minute or 2 and then prepared small balls out of it. If the dough is too sticky, add some flour to it and make it soft but, the dough shouldn’t get dry, that need to be taken care of. Stickier dough leads to more elastic bread
Now, transfer the dough balls into the baking tray and flatten it into a thin disc of around 3 cm height. Cut a deep cross on the top of the bread and pour some flour into it
Let it bake for 20-30 minutes at around 430 Degrees Fahrenheit or till it turns out to be crusty from outside
Now, transfer it to the cooling rack from 1 hour and then slice it up
