These rolls are an adaptation of my earlier recipe Irish Soda Bread. They make the perfect little side accompaniment to winter soups and stews. They are hearty and filling and best of all so quick to make as they don’t need to be kneaded or left to rise… the beauty of soda bread.

Lemon & Ginger Spiced Soda Bread


  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • 1½ cups wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 250ml warm water
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and lightly dust a baking tray with flour
  2. Sift the flours, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Stir in the zest, parsley and ginger
  3. Mix the water and the lemon juice together then pour into the flour mixture. Stir and beat together with a wooden spoon until there are no dry patches of flour left. If dough still is too dry add a little more water, a teaspoon at a time. The dough needs to be sticky but not too wet
  4. Flour your hands, and dust a little on top of the dough so your hands don’t stick, seperate dough into 4 equal pieces and pat and mould into 4 rounds
  5. Place rolls on the floured baking tray, cross the top with a knife and place in oven immediately. Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned
  6. Let the rolls cool slightly before serving. Perfect for soups and stews
