These soda bread rolls are deliciously malty, slightly sweet tasting rolls that honestly will disappear quickly from any plate at the table so luckily the recipe makes at least 12 rolls or one decently sized loaf.
This has been my first time baking Irish soda bread and believe me it’s not going to be the last. I have plans for baking lots of different types of soda breads soon.
I find the texture and flavour of this kind of roll, totally delicious, not only that but extremely easy to make. Unlike baking with yeast there’s no waiting time for dough to rise, or kneading process.
These soda bread oaten rolls can be put together quickly and only take a mere 15 minutes to bake in the oven. When you scan through the ingredients you may think, oh buttermilk, I don’t have that in my fridge, where can I buy that ingredient.
Never fear, you can make your own buttermilk by adding a little lemon juice to semi skimmed milk, which gives a buttermilk you can use in this recipe.
Alternatively, just use a runny plain yogurt instead, as I did. St Patrick’s day is on the 17th of March so I thought I would make use of a can of draught Guinness since a good rich stout or a flat beer if that’s all you have available, is often used in an Irish soda bread, depending upon the variation.
