3. Prepare Wet Ingredients:

 In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk (or almond milk with vinegar), and apple cider vinegar. If you have a sweet tooth, add your preferred keto-friendly sweetener to the wet mix.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:

Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. Do not overmix; you want a slightly sticky consistency.

5. Shape the Dough:

Transfer the dough onto the prepared baking sheet and shape it into a round loaf. Use a sharp knife to score an “X” on the top – a classic characteristic of Irish soda bread.

6. Bake:

   Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40-45 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

7. Cool and Enjoy:

Allow the bread to cool for a bit before slicing. Serve with your favourite keto-friendly toppings like butter or cream cheese.

 Additional Tips:

– For added texture and flavour, toss in a handful of chopped nuts or seeds into the dough before baking.

– Experiment with different keto-friendly sweeteners to find the one that suits your taste preferences.

– This keto-friendly Irish soda bread pairs wonderfully with a cup of unsweetened almond milk or herbal tea.

Now you can relish the taste of Irish soda bread without straying from your keto goals. Whether you have visited the emerald isle or not, this recipe brings the essence of Ireland to your kitchen in a healthier, low-carb form. Enjoy the hearty Flavors of tradition with a keto twist!
