Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

This gluten free Irish soda bread is a lightly sweet quick bread that tastes best slathered with some extra Irish butter. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day, the way you remember.

What makes this Irish soda bread special?

I first developed this recipe many years ago when my gluten free son, who is now considerably taller than I am (and I’m not short) was in the early years of grammar school. They were “celebrating” St. Patrick’s Day by sharing Irish soda bread.

Since he was already gluten free, and necessity is the mother of invention, I developed this recipe. I’ve been making it ever since—and when my son is feeling generous, he will remember the grammar school times to me.

Dairy Free Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

This decadent dairy free gluten free chocolate cake is made with a ‘secret ingredient’ that makes it super tender without any added butter or eggs.

What makes this chocolate cake different?

The “secret ingredient” that replaces eggs and butter in this cake is mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is a stable emulsion made of eggs and oil.

If you love mayonnaise, you won’t taste it in this cake. If you can’t stand mayonnaise, you still won’t taste it in this cake.… Read more

She doesn’t like the taste of almond flour—but she really likes these muffins. That is a win. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If you add a few diced ripe bananas to the tops of them, like you see in the background of the photo above, they will spread a bit more on top. Try adding them to some, but not all.
