Carrot, zucchini and cheddar soda bread rolls

Soda bread is a really quick and easy bread to make, and it's easily given more flavor (and veg power!) with some simple additions.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour 140g plain flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 145g whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk 240ml
  • ½ cup cheddar 50g, grated
  • ½ cup carrot 55g, grated
  • ½ cup zucchini 65g courgette, grated


  • Preheat the oven to 350F/175C.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda/bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • To this mixture, add the buttermilk, cheddar, carrot and zucchini/courgette and mix to ensure it is all combined but try not to overmix. It is often easiest to use your hand once you have it part way there.
  • Tip the mixture out on to a lightly floured surface and form it in to a fairly even flattened ball.
  • Cut the mixture into eight - the easiest way is to cut it almost like a pizza four times all the way across (see picture above).
  • Roll each piece in your hands to soften off the edges and make into a roughly rounded shape. The shape doesn't need to be perfect, it's better to try not to have any folds or joins as these may make cracks when they bake.
  • Place the rolls on a lightly floured baking sheet/tray with a good 2-3in/5cm or more between them as they will expand. If you like, gently score the top with an x.
  • Bake in the oven for approx 40min until browned and hollow sounding when you tap the bottom.
