It’s a lovely day here at the Little Mill HQ with temperatures reaching a sizzling 21C, perfect BBQ weather! We Irish are known for our ability to break out the BBQ in a lot less favourable conditions, so why not throw some delicious Irish beef burgers on the grill and wrap them in delicious wholemeal soda bread baps.

You will need:

~ 200 g The Little Mill Stoneground Wholemeal Flour

~ 250g Strong White Flour

~ 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda

~ 1 large free range egg

~ 350 ml of buttermilk

~ 2tbsp of rolled oats


~ Pre heat the over to 200C/Gas Mark 7 and dust a large baking sheet with flour

~ In a large mixing bowl, combine together the flours and bicarbonate of soda and make a wekk. Measure the buttermilk into a pyrex jug and then crack in the egg whisk to combine.

~ Pour the mix into the well and then using a wooden spoon, bring the mix together with the dry ingredients until you have a dough.

~ Form six little palm sized buns and place on the baking sheet and sprinkle with rolled oats.

~ Transfer to the oven for 40 minutes.

~ Remove from the oven and set on a wire wrack to cool completely.
