Ingredients

  • 250g/9oz plain wholemeal flour
  • 250g/9oz plain white flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 420ml/15fl oz buttermilk
  • extra flour for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the two types of flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

  3. Add the buttermilk and mix until a sticky dough forms.

  4. Lightly flour a work surface and tip the dough onto it.

  5. Gently roll and fold the dough a couple of times to bring the mixture together. Do not knead.

  6. Shape the dough into a ball. Flatten the ball gently with your hand. Score the dough with a deep cross dividing it into quarters. Dust the bread with flour.

  7. Place onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 30 minutes at 200C/400F/Gas 6. The loaf should be golden-brown.

  8. Leave to cool on a wire rack. This is best eaten on the day of baking.
