Title:   Irish Soda Bread
Category:   Breads - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
2 c nondairy milk
2 t apple cider vinegar- or lemon juice
4 c whole wheat pastry flour
1 t baking soda
1 t sea salt
2 T raw sugar- optional
1 c raisins- optional
Directions:   Combine the apple cider vinegar with nondairy milk and set aside for at least 5 minutes. Grab a really big mixing bowl and add the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and raisins. Whisk until it's evenly combined and well incorporated. Whisk the nondairy milk mixture a few times until it's light yellow and curdled. Slowly pour nondairy milk mixture into the flour, stirring as you go with a wooden spoon until it's wet and dough-like. You may not use all of the liquid. Knead the dough once or twice to shape it into a ball but be careful not to over knead or it will be tough. Place dough on a greased cookie sheet or a greased cast-iron skillet (how the Irish do it). Using a serrated knife to make an "X". Bake 30 to 45 minutes at 425F until it's golden and cooked thoroughly. Check by pushing a long, wooden skewer or thin chopstick into the center. If it comes out clean, it's done. Also add an aluminum foil tent over top after 20 to 25 minutes if the top is burning or getting too dark.
