Vegan Irish Soda Bread in the Instant Pot! Oil free, Yummy
Today I set out on an adventure to make a fool of myself by trying Irish soda bread for the first time...and in the Instant Pot no less! While I did make a fool of myself, the soda bread actually turned out great!
I don't cook or eat bread very often so this was a special treat for St. Paddy's Day. See below for the recipe!
Irish Soda Bread
This soda bread is vegan, oil-free, moist, and delicious!
- 2 cups soy milk
- 10 dates
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
- 1 cup raisins
Blend the soy milk and dates until smooth. Add the apple cider vine- gar and blend for just a few seconds. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the apple cider vinegar “curdle” the milk. Combine the flour, baking soda, and caraway seeds in a mixing bowl and whisk together. Add the raisins and give it another stir. Pour the wet blender ingredients into the dry and mix until you have a sticky dough. Knead the dough in your bowl adding additional flour as needed to reach desired doughy texture. Once it is well-combined, form it into a nice ball and plop it into an 8 cup round glass pyrex, no liner needed. Place your steamer basket or trivet into your 6 or 8 quart pressure cooker with one cup of water beneath. Place the pyrex on the trivet and cover with a round piece of loose fitting parchment or tin foil. Set the pressure cooker to manual for 45 minutes, natural release. Remove and allow to cool thoroughly before slicing it up.
