Irish Soda Bread

• All Purpose Flour 4 cups
• Salt 1 teaspoon
• Baking Powder 1 teaspoon
• Baking Soda 1 teaspoon
• Caraway Seeds (optional) 1 Tablespoon
• Light & Dark Raisins (optional) ½ -¾cup total
• Soy Milk 2 cups
• Apple Cider Vinegar 2 Tablespoons
• Coconut Oil any Vegetable Oil 2 Tablespoons
• Add the apple cider vinegar to the soy milk and let stand to thicken about 5 -10 minutes.
• In a large mixing bowl combine all the sifted dry ingredients and the raisins and caraway seeds.
• Add the coconut oil and the soured soy milk and work this dough to a very soft, sticky mass.
• Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it gently into a disc (or 2 if you are making the smaller loaves).
• This loaf is what we call a "free form" bread. So you will place onto a sheet pan with parchment paper or a non stick sheet pan lightly floured and cut an X in the top of the dough round.
• Dust with a little more flour, and bake immediately in preheated 350° F oven
• Bake for 15 minutes at 350°F then turn the oven down to 325°F and bake for another 30 min to 40 minutes (depending on the size of your loaf or loaves smaller loaves take less time) or until it reaches 200°F on an instant read thermometer
• Cool completely before slicing
