Irish Soda Bread–Gluten-Free and so Good with Fall Soups!

This is a family favorite, especially in the Fall with homemade soup.  It fills out the menu and the tummies.  We love a big pot of soup, some fruit, and some bread for a warming dinner when the air gets crisp.

Irish soda bread is a good recipe to make with gluten-free flour as it is best eaten fresh. Any leftovers can be toasted and for breakfast, topped with butter and jelly.  Yum!  This is a simple recipe that makes just enough.  It takes just over an hour to have it out of the oven and on the table.

If you have never made this bread–give it a try.  You will be glad you did!
