Yeast Free and Gluten Free Traditional Irish Soda Bread

posted in: General Health | 0

This is one of my my favourite recipes for a wheat free and gluten free bread in the style of the traditional Irish soda bread. It does not contain yeast. The raising agent is the combination of bicarbonate of soda and a lactic acid containing milk. I find it much more filling and tasty than the shop-bought breads.  Ingredients 5oz Doves Farm Plain White Flour Blend 4oz rice flour 2.5 oz ground hazelnuts (I use a coffee grinder for this) … Read More

He pushed some cars up and down the Lego street and made appropriate car noises. … Read More
