|Lite & Easy Irish Soda-Bread Rolls
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
1/4 cup raisins or dried currants
water to cover
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 Tbsp low-fat mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
Preheat oven to 425º. Spray 6 cups of a muffin pan liberally with cooking spray (for a 12-cup pan for a 6-cup recipe put a little water in each empty cup). Makes 6 rolls.
Cover raisins with water & bring to a boil. Turn fire off & let soak. Combine all dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together mayonnaise & buttermilk. Drain raisins well & add.
Stir the wet & dry ingredients together with a fork just until no dry flour remains. Do not over-mix or beat.
Divide into 6 muffin cups & bake for 12 - 15 min. until tops are golden & sound hollow when tapped. Don't let bottoms scorch-- they'll do so easily. If in doubt, lift one out & look. Serve immediately with lite margarine or a little butter.
