What can I use instead of beer etc. when I make the Irish Oaten Rolls. I don't have any type of beer.
Nigella's Irish Oaten Rolls (from KITCHEN) are a form of soda bread formed into buns. The Guinness used in the mixture adds some flavour as well as adding an extra Irish element. If you don't have Guinness or beer then we suggest substituting it with extra buttermilk or runny yogurt (to make a total of 450mls/generous 1¾ cups).
If you can't find buttermilk then you can make your own by adding 2¼ teaspoons of lemon juice to 150mls/⅔ cup of semi-skimmed milk (2% milk). If you are using 450mls liquid then you would need 450mls milk and 2 tablespoons plus ¾ teaspoon lemon juice. You may also like to try Nigella's Soda Bread Buns With Fennel Seeds And Cranberries.
