Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

IMG_5238

We had a snow day which meant I was feeling a little extra ambitious in the kitchen; I figured I would get in the St. Patty’s day spirit and bake up some Irish soda bread, gluten free style.  Please note:  no ambition needed for this recipe. You don’t have to be Irish either (as I am not).  I had done my research and found so many different recipes for gf Irish soda bread, I took a gamble and took the parts I liked from each one added some extra raisins and kept my fingers crossed while it baked.  Total recipe score!  With a thick spread of Kerrygold butter (the only butter I will buy) this was the perfect snow day snack with my afternoon coffee.
