Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

A gluten-free Irish Soda Bread made with gluten-free oat flour and only a hint of sugar. The caraway seeds adds a delicious aroma and taste. The crunchy crust surrounds a moist tender center. Simply add raisins or currants to bring in a touch of sweetness. The bread is best made the day of serving and will dry out quickly.
