We used golden raisins for this bread, but you could easily use another dried fruit instead.

My mom Rosalie served this traditional Irish bread lightly toasted with a slathering of soft butter and a generous dollop of strawberry jam.

3 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

½ cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp. baking powder

¾ tsp. salt

½ cup golden raisins

1½ cups buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flours, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Stir in raisins. Add buttermilk, and stir with fork until clumps form. Gather dough into a ball, and place on lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough just holds together, about one minute. Shape dough into round loaf about 6 inches across and 2 inches high, and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Using sharp knife, cut a large "X" into top of loaf, about one inch deep.
  3. Bake until loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on bottom, about 35 minutes. Transfer to rack, and cool.

You'll find these are even lighter and more delightful than those made with wheat flour. They virtually melt in your mouth and deserve a good slather with softened butter while they're still soft.
