A family tradition each St. Patrick’s Day was Aunt Peg’s Irish Soda Bread.  Delicious toasted with a cup of tea for an afternoon snack, it was a delightful, once a year treat every March 17th. We’ve amended the recipe so it is Blood Type Diet friendly below. Sláinte!

Aunt Peg’s Irish Soda Bread

(Editors note:  This is an Irish soda bread recipe that has no baking soda…it’s not a typo, just exactly the way Aunt Peg made it.)

Preheat oven 350 degrees

  • 4 cups spelt flour or blood type specific baking mix
  • 4 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 2 tablespoons organic melted butter
  • 1 cup raisins soaked in water (optional)
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk (substitute almond milk mixed with 1 teaspoon lemon for BT friendly milk source)

Whisk together buttermilk, butter and eggs.  Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, caraway seeds and salt.  Drain raisins add to flour mixture to coat thoroughly.  Slowly add the liquid mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.  Pour into a greased and floured pan.

Bake 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees.

“May the bread always rise before you.”
