Dairy-free soda bread

A lot of my personal friends know this, but my baby is allergic to milk. Allergic, not "lactose intolerant" so that means it can't even touch her skin.

And since I want her to actually get some nutrients, I'm what they call an 'extended nurser' which honestly would have freaked me out before I had children of my own, but now seems completely natural and normal.

This means that I myself have to eat dairy-free. And it also means that I haven't had pizza for almost a year. Same for ice cream, cream cheese, cheese crackers, even Goldfish. (And guess what, there's even milk products in salt and vinegar potato chips!!)



But it's St. Patty's Day, which means I am required by law to make soda bread.



And here's what I came up with...



2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup if you have 'plain' soy/rice milk)

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 egg

1/4 cup white rasins

1 Tbl vinegar plus enough vanilla rice milk to make 1 cup (or whatever non-dairy product you've got, see note above about sugar)



Mix with a wooden spoon in a big bowl and bake it in a loaf pan at 325 degrees for about an hour.



I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical when I pulled it out of the oven. But I gotta say, it's actually pretty good. My soda bread craving is satisfied.

is awesome. With or without cheese. In fact it's the only pizza my eldest will eat.
