Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread Rolls
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.Advertisement
Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, 1/2 cup milk, honey and thyme in a medium bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the dough comes together.
Dust a clean work surface with whole-wheat flour. Turn the dough out and gently knead with barely damp hands just a few times until smooth. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and shape each into a 2- to 2 1/2-inch round about 1 inch thick. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon milk and sprinkle with oats, pressing on them lightly to adhere.
Bake the rolls until golden brown on the bottom and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
Make Ahead Tip: To make ahead: Store airtight for up to 1 day; reheat in a warm oven.
Equipment: Parchment paper or nonstick baking mat
Tip: No buttermilk? You can make “sour milk” as a substitute: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup nonfat milk; let stand for about 10 minutes before using.
