Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Ideal for Sunday brunch

4 serves
60 minutes


    Dry ingredients:

    • 600g plain flour 
    • 100g pine nuts
    • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 3/4 tsp salt

    Wet ingredients:

    • 400ml plant-based milk
    • 50ml sunflower oil 
    • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar


    • Preheat your oven to 180C (360F). 
    • Mix together all wet ingredients in a bowl. The liquid will curdle, but thats normal.
    • Then mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. I had to used white flour because of people panic-buying and the only one left was plain white flour, but you can also use wholemeal flour (don't use self-raising flour though, it may rise like a cake). Make sure there are no lumps and it's thoroughly mixed. 
    • Then combined wet and dry ingredients in the large bowl until you get a dough. Only knead as much as needed because otherwise the gluten will react and you will end up with a very dense loaf. The less kneading the better, because it will keep the bread light and fluffy.
    • Place the dough on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roughly form a bread shape. You don't need to smooth it because the rough bite will become nice and crispy. Bake for 40 minutes.
    • Then take out of the oven and cover with a kitchen towel. Let rest for 1 hour. If you don't let it rest the bread might be too crumbly, so I would recommend to wait a bit before you eat it.
    • Enjoy it with either sweet toppings like jam or savoury ones like hummus or baba ganoush.

    This bread also lasts for quite a while.

     Wrap it in a tea towel and it will stay fresh for a week (even better if kept as well in a bread box).
