Have you made soda bread before?
It's a brilliant recipe to have up your sleeve for those moments when you need something for lunch in a hurry.
And this recipe for soda bread rolls is not only quick and easy, it's also made with wholewheat flour and contains a portion of carrots.
I love these bread rolls served fresh from the oven with a bowl of soup.
What is soda bread?
There's nothing quite like homemade bread but normal bread takes time to make.
Yeast bread is delicious but it takes its time to rise. And if you're in a hurry there often isn't time to make your own bread.
Soda bread on the other hand can be mixed together in minutes and is quick to bake.
Many soda bread recipes use buttermilk but I prefer to use yoghurt instead as it's easier to find.
How does soda bread rise?
Rather than yeast, soda bread contains bicarbonate of soda (called baking soda in the United States) as a raising agent, which makes it much quicker.
All you need to do is mix the ingredients together and pop it in the oven - no time waiting for it to rise at all.
Great for kids to make
The fact that soda bread is so quick and easy to make means that these are great bread rolls for kids to make.
Which flour is best for soda bread?
The other advantage of soda bread is that it can be made with standard plain flour - you don't need to hunt out bread flour.
I've made these rolls with plain white flour, wholemeal flour and buckwheat flour. They were all good but I've opted for wholemeal in this recipe.
I was the only member of our family who liked the buckwheat ones! It has rather a distinctive taste.
How to make vegan soda bread
I make my soda bread vegan by using plain soya yoghurt and oat milk to make it.
What to serve with soda bread rolls
They're also lovely warm with butter or cream cheese (or vegan alternatives) straight from the oven. If you're giving them to children make sure they have time to cool as they will be very hot in the middle.
Soda bread rolls can also be used as a sandwich with fillings. However, it is best to eat soda bread on the day it's made as it dries out quickly.
