Brown Soda Bread


225g coarse wholemeal flour
225g plain white flour
100g porridge oats
100g wheatgerm
100g bran
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1½ tsp sea salt
450ml buttermilk
1 egg
25g butter
1 tbsp treacle


Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
Sift the white flour into a large mixing bowl along with the salt and bicarbonate of soda. Add the wholemeal flour and use your hands to give the flour a good mixing.
Add the egg butter and treacle to the buttermilk in a measuring jug. Mix well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently and quickly. The dough will be quite wet.
Transfer to a greased 2lb loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour, or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped. Wrap in a tea-towel (prevents the loaf from drying out) and leave to cool a little before cutting
