Wheaten soda bread

Go buy yourself some buttermilk….I promise you you won’t regret it, and that is the hardest thing about making this bread. The rest a three year old could do. It’s that quick, your oven won’t have had time to heat up so you really have to turn it on as soon as the urge takes you! I’ve gone with a mix of double the wholemeal to white flour but I actually love all wholemeal just as much, you decide what you’d prefer. I triple the recipe and it make three loaves, which uses an entire litre of milk so you don’t even have to measure that! Then you can stick two in the freezer, even more laziness! This bread is so tasty with a bowl of warming soup or even better with cheese.

wheaten soda bread

225g coarse wholemeal flour
110g plain white flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp treacle (optional)
330 ml buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 200C. Lightly grease your loaf tin. Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl and with a hand whisk (not electric) mix everything well. Add the wet ingredients and mix well to make a wet dough. Pour into your tin and level the mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes until well risen and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Leave to cool.
