  • 400g Wholemeal Flour
  • 50g Self-raising Flour
  • A handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • 1tsp Baking Soda
  • 1tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 100g Black Olives
  • 350ml Buttermilk
  • A pinch of dried rosemary


    1. Preheat fan oven to 230 C. Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
    2. Add the egg and milk to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
    3. Chop up the olives and add to the dough and mix through.
    4. Line a 1 pound tin with parchment paper and add the mixture. The dough will be very wet and fill the tin easily.
    5. Score the length of the dough with a knife to help even cooking.
    6. Cook at 230 C for 10 minutes then reduce the temperature to 190 C and cook for a further 55 minutes.
    7. Allow to cool, covered, on a wire rack.

Soda bread doesn't usually have an egg I think but it works better with one in it
