Quinoa Irish Soda Bread




  • 2 cups quinoa flour
  • 1-3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup plus 1 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


In a large bowl, whisk the quinoa flour, baking powder, caraway seeds, salt, and baking soda.
Add the buttermilk and raisins and mix until blended. Divide dough between prepared pans, spreading evenly.
Bake 25 to 35 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Let cool in pans 5 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely on racks.Homemade Buttermilk If you don't have buttermilk, it's easy to make a substitute. Mix 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice or white (or cider) vinegar into 1 cup (250 mL) milk. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before using, to allow the milk to curdle. Any extra can be stored in the refrigerator for the same amount of time as the milk from which it was made.
