While I don't know your toxins or list of compliant foods, I know this recipe would work for
many people.  And I never made Irish soda bread before so not sure how close to the original
this might be.  Doesn't soda bread contain raisins?

People gave it 5 stars....haven't made it but if you do, let us know.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/gluten-free-irish-soda-bread/

1 1/2 cups white rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch round cake pan.
Combine the rice flour, tapioca flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk . Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into the cake pan.

Bake for 65 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Wrap bread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and let stand overnight for the best flavor.


Here's another recipe

Sometimes it has raisins but what we ate in Ireland usually had currants.
It isn't difficult to make and is tasty right out of the oven...doesn't really keep its freshness for a long time but does freeze well. I have 2 recipes but this is the one my (Irish) DH likes.
1tablespoon of butter
4 cups flour ( I haven't tried brown rice flour yet )
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 cup buttermilk
heat oven to 425 and grease large baking sheet with the butter
sift flour, soda and salt into a large mixing bowl and gradually beat in buttermilk with a wooden spoon...dough should be smooth but firm..may need additional buttermilk
Transfer dough to a floured board and shape into a flat, round loaf, about 1 1/2 inches thick and 8 inches in diameter
Place on baking sheet..with a sharp knife, cut a deep cross on top
place in oven for 30 min. until top is golden
remove from oven and cool slightly...best eaten soon with butter and jam...Yummo!!!!
My other recipe uses eggs, milk, sugar and raisins....
I don't know how to say it in "Gaeilge" but Happy St. Patrick's Day! (and we have an Irish for beginners book)

In place of buttermilk, you could use kefir, or a combination of a compliant milk (such as soy or almond) with about a tablespoon of lemon juice added per cup. A mixture of yogurt and a compliant milk would probably work as well. You want something "creamy" as well as acidic. It's not JUST for the taste- you need an acidic ingredient to react to the baking soda so the bread can rise. It will fall flat otherwise.

Wow, thank you ladies for the recipes and tips     I can have kefir or buttermilk and they are a neutral.  I can't wait to try the recipes. I'm part Irish on my Dad's side. His family originated in Ireland and migrated to England during the potato famine    Happy St. Paddy's Day all!

translated...Happy St. Patrick´s Day everyone...or literally ´Blessings of St Patrick´s Day to everyone!´

Cajun´s recipe sounds exactly right! I haven´t actually made soda bread for years since I realised how addictive bread can be for me( we were reared on it!!!) ...but it is sooo delicious just out of the oven slathered in butter.. The version with raisins or currants is called "spotted dick"...no idea why!!! or "curannty bread"!!!

There´s also a version with added treacle ( like molasses) which gives a really lovely flavour...it was my Dad´s favourite! My Mum was the best brown soda bread maker in the world...she didn´t have a recipe,just a handful of this and a splosh of that... which is such a shame as I would love to have had all her recipes...

I don´t know how a gluten-free version would turn out, but I used spelt, a mixture of brown and white, or sometimes just white...it tasted very authentic! My children particularly loved the white soda bread...Now I just make yeasted spelt bread for DH and DD....Perhaps for Paddy´s Day I might just make it again for a real treat!

I have never baked this bread myself. Do you serve it with a traditional Irish meal?

What do y'all eat with it on St. Patrick's Day?

Rosa,
Oh how I sooooo love the brown soda bread in your lovely country!!!!!! I even love it plain ! But your country's butter is so divine that I do indulge!
I would love to be able to make that! My DH and I will surely enjoy when we visit Ireland in 2014!! yay!

Lin,
I have always made it with unbleached wheat flour..but now...with spelt. It is ok but not as yummy as the original, in my opinion. I am going to try brown rice flour for this weekend..St. Patricks Day.
My DH loves corned beef brisket and I usually make it with potatoes for him on this one Irish holiday each year. When we were on our first trip to Ireland he asked our hostess in a B&B about corned beef and she said that was "American" ...they make regular brisket or ham there.(Newmarket-on-Fergus)

Rosa, how do you celebrate?
Our last trip there was in 2009 and we spent St. Patrick's Day at the parade in Galway...only to find out the good one was in Dublin! It was a record 70+ degree temp and the locals were soaking up the sun down by the river! My DH was disappointed that the parade was "multi-cultural" as he was so looking forward to
authentic Irish pipers/bands/dancers, etc. There was only one small group of school kids at the beginning with a young man dressed as St. Patrick. Thats it!
Then the locals told us New york is the place to be on this day as the celebration is all about the Irish bringing their culture with them when they emmigrated.

Mayflowers,
I have 2 Irish family lines(Blackburn and Moore) on my Dad's side and one Scottish (Lord Lackey/12th century) on my Mom's.(But both parents are mostly French)

My DH is 1/2 Irish.(All of his Mom's side) His family came to America during the great famine.  (That Cromwell was a nasty guy)
They settled in Iowa and farmed.

This site has interesting corned beef/cabbage recipes, including a link to an assortment of soda bread recipes.
I also recently watched Ann Burrell make an Irish lamb stew with turnips on her program.

As for the NY St. Paddy's Day parade...Batten down them hatches, because - in the old days, anyway - this was a day of ... bigtime misbehavior on the Manhattan streets, and we used to just stay inside...

Ann Burrell was saying that the Irish are particularly enamored of turnips.
(I happen to like them, too.)
But -- back to soda bread ---

Cajun and san j....
I agree soda bread when fresh and home-made is divine! But we don´t eat it with dinner...it´s eaten for breakfast and tea usually...traditionally eaten with " a fry"...but I don´t eat frys!

I´m probably very untypically Irish ... we don´t celebrate Paddy´s Day in any major way. When my children were young and we lived near Dublin we brought them to see the parade which was always fantastic entertainment ( yes, very multi-cultural now!)
Now I live in the south-east, children grown/some left home...so I´ll be watching the Dublin parade on T.V. and just having a relaxing day.
Unfortunately too, celebrations like these can bring out the worst attributes of the Irish...yep, a case of "battening the hatches" in some places here too! Shame, as it ruins the day for others.

Turnips?? ugh! cannot be in the same room as a turnip

Rosa,
No likey turnips, huh?    
I remember driving between Cork and Dublin back in 2005. We saw Waterford, Kilkenny, The National Horse stud farm, and the hauntingly beautiful ancient Wicklow mountains and Glendalough cemetery with the tower of Kevin. Absolutely gorgeous country all around!
Our trip in '09 was mostly the west and across the middle.
We did enjoy delicious food nearly everywhere..especially the bread and yummy soups.
Still the best cod I have ever eaten in my life!!!

Fascinating that St Patty's day is a bigger deal in NYC than in Ireland- though it does make a lot of sense!

I doubt there's going to be any drunken brawls in Mayor Bloomburg's NYC.  It's probably good, safe fun nowadays, like New Year's Eve in Times Square.

Traditionally, corned beef and cabbage, but since we not fans of corned beef in my family, I'm making stuffed cabbage..

I so want to visit Ireland and have the local cusine. I hear when you visit people, they give you a bowl of peas?  I like peas

Definitely " no likey turnips"   I´ve never ever bought a turnip!!!
Yep...seems like Paddy´s Day is more celebrated in New York than here...there are probably more Irish there  

Cajun
delighted to hear you had such wonderful holidays here...Glendalough is one of my all-time favourite places...I don´t visit there very often anymore since I moved further south. You must come and visit us here in the south-east next time!

Mayflowers
I don´t know of the tradition of giving a bowl of peas to visitors   The local cuisine is not terribly interesting to my palate...cabbage and corned beef    not very appropriate for O´s... I do like fish though...

My mother's family was from Ireland and settled in Iowa and farmed, some of them are still there farming, including my cousin, Shannon Thomas Bryan ( all three of his names are family surnames).

GR,
My DH still has family in Iowa but I believe only some second cousins are still farming. My DH was born in Sac city but raised in Michigan until coming to California at age 10. His Mother's surname was McClure (and they did multiply like....tribes!!!)
Her other family surnames were Hollister and Bridget. We found McClures in county Armaugh when we were in Ireland.

Well, the brown rice flour was ok for the soda bread...but still not what I like.
So, at least our Irish coffees came out delicious1 I used Irish Mist instead of Irish whisky. It is like a whisky liquer made from traditional mead. We had some at Bunratty Castle and Folkpark in Ireland.

Rosa,
We, actually my DH, really enjoyed the dessert, banoffee, when we were there. I have made it several times...it is too sweet for me...but he loves it!
And, yes, we plan to drive all over Ireland in 2014!!!!
We watched a funny singing group, Gaelic storm, on TV last evening..my DH was getting melancholy about Ireland.   I am usually the dramatic, sappy one but he was really in a "yearning for Ireland" mood!!
I think it was partly because we do not live in an area with any sort of Irish or Scottish or English pub and he wanted to have dinner and a Guiness and listen to Irish music. We could have driven 70 miles and found several "Irish/type" pubs but then we couldn't have a drink and drive, so....I just told him, "Next year in Ireland"..

Hi Cajun,
I avoid gluten so wheat/spelt are out for me.  I've been reading that using almond flour with some other flours can be good, might have to try and experiment.
thanks, Lin

Lin,
Oh..I forgot about almond flour. I am so used to just using spelt or brown rice flour for everything!!! I use almond meal for cookies but suppose almond flour will work better for bread.
