This cheesy vegan soda bread is one of my new favourite healthy no yeast quick bread recipes because it's super flavourful, easy to make and doesn't require any rise time!

  • 1 cup almond milk + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour plus more for kneeding
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ½ cup fortified nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup vegan butter cut into pieces
  • ¾ c shredded vegan orange cheese


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place a piece of parchment paper into a round cast iron skillet with high sides or a cake pan.
  • Mix the almond milk and vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes to make "buttermilk".
  • In a large bowl, mix the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, flax, nutritional yeast, sugar, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl. Mix together until combined.
  • Cut the vegan butter into the dry ingredients and rub your finger and thumb together to get small pieces of butter coated in the flour.
  • Add buttermilk and cheese and use your hands until they're well incorporated. This will be a very wet dough!
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup whole wheat flour to your work surface and turn the dough out onto the surface. Sprinkle another 1-2 tablespoons of flour on top of the dough. Then fold the dough onto itself like a book and add another tablespoon or so of flour as you kneed. Kneed for another 5 minutes until it's no longer super sticky (it will still be a moist flour, but you want it to stop sticking to the surface with every turn.) Fold corners under to make a ball and set the ball in the cast iron. Cut a X on the top of the circle.
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and place the loaf on a rack to cool. Slice and serve with vegan butter or vegan cream cheese.
