Soaked Spelt Irish Soda Bread

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would post this recipe. Years ago, my aunt gave me a soda bread recipe given to her by her Irish teacher. Here’s my version, with soaked spelt flour instead of wheat flour.

1 c kefir
2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/4 cup oil (olive or melted coconut)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp rapadura
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup raisins
1 Tbsp caraway seeds (optional)

Mix together spelt flour and kefir. Cover and leave overnight. In the morning, add oil, egg, rapadura and salt and mix well. Mix in baking powder and soda. Stir in raisins and caraway seeds.

Put into a greased loaf pan and bake at 375 for 45 minutes.
