Irish Soy-da Bread Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes


  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups Original Flavored Vitasoy soymilk


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda into large mixing bowl.
  2. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, work margarine into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, then stir in raisins and caraway seeds.
  3. Add egg and soymilk and mix in with a wooden spoon until dough is too stiff to stir. Dust hands with flour, gently kneading until dough is in a ball. Add flour if dough is too sticky but do not over knead. Shape into a round loaf.
  4. Transfer dough to lightly greased cast-iron skillet or a baking sheet. Score top of dough about 1/2" deep in an "X" shape using a knife. Bake until bread is golden, 35-45 minutes. Stick a straw in the center and when it comes out clean, it's done. Cool briefly and serve.
