Irish Soda Rolls

Irish soda bread is a nice addition to almost any dinner, but these rolls are easier to serve and are crustier than the bread.

QUICK

INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 12 ROLLS

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1¼ cups sour cream
  • 2 cups dried currants
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with Silpat liner and set aside.

  2. In large bowl, combine sugars, flours, baking powder, and baking soda and mix with a whisk until combined.

  3. In medium bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, and sour cream and beat until combined. Add to the flour mixture and stir just until a dough begins to form.

  4. Gently stir in currants. Drop mixture by scant ¼-cup amounts onto cookie sheets, making about 12 rolls. Partially smooth tops, then dust with flour.

  5. Bake for 20–30 minutes or until rolls are light golden brown and set. Remove to wire rack and let cool for 15–20 minutes.
