Air Fryer Irish Soda Bread ❘ Vegan Recipe

This recipe makes one 7 inch (17.78 cm) round loaf.

1 cup (240 mL) almond milk
1 tablespoon (15 mL) apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups (340 g) all purple flour
1 cup (227 g) oat flour
2 tablespoons (30 mL) pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) baking soda
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) salt
1/4 cup (57 g) cold vegan butter
1/2 cup (115 g) raisins
1/2 cup (120 mL) orange juice


  1. Preheat your airfryer for three minutes at 350*F (180*C) (airfry mode)
  2. Place the almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, set aside
  3. Place both flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl, set aside
  4. Place raisins and orange juice in a large microwavable bowl and microwave for five minutes, or until the orange juice is fully absorbed by the raisins (if you don’t use a large bowl, the orange juice will bubble over the sides)
  5. Set the raisins aside and grease and flour a baking dish that fits inside your airfryer (I use a 7-inch (17.78 cm) round baking dish meant for an Instant Pot)
  6. Add the butter, maple syrup, almond milk and vinegar and raisins to the bowl of dry ingredients
  7. With your hands, knead all the ingredients together, only until fully combined, then shape it into a slightly flattened round ball, or a thick disk
  8. Drop the dough into the baking dish and score an X on the top with a sharp knife
  9. Airfry the dough at 325*F (170*C) for 25 minutes, then with a spatula, flip the bread over and airfry for another 10 minutes (poke the center with a toothpick, and it should come out clean when it’s fully done)
  10. Place the bread on a cooling rack, and cool for at least a half hour before serving (Don’t be concerned with how hard the bread is because it’s supposed to be a soft, but dense bread with a crunch exterior)
  11. When fully cooled, store in a ziplock bag or airtight container on your counter or in your fridge

Tip: I blended 1 cup (227 g) of quick oats to make the 1 cup (227 g) of oat flour

Fun Fact: My favorite way to eat Irish soda bread is with butter on it with a glass of half orange juice and half sparkling water.
