Veda is a Northern Irish bread made from malted flour. It can only be bought in Northern Ireland (usually) so this recipe is a lifesaver if you love it but don't live there! The bread is fairly soft, dark and chewy. Best eaten toasted with butter (and maybe cheese) for me but I've heard lots of different ways of eating it.


  • 270g Strong white flour
  • 20g Roasted barley Malt Flour
  • 20g Nut Brown Malt Flour
  • 55g (approx 2 tbsp) Barley malt extract
  • 2/3 tsp salt
  • 2/3 tbsp olive oil
  • 145g tepid water
  • 4g yeast (approx 1 - 1.5 tsp)


  • STEP 1
    This recipe works perfectly in a bread maker following a standard white loaf programme (small size if you have the option). For a bread maker, add ingredients in the following order: Water, salt, oil, barley malt extract, flours, yeast
  • STEP 2
    It has also been used to make bread the old fashioned, manual way - essentially, follow the usual bread making process to combine all the ingredients, knead, prove, etc, cooking for a similar amount of time to a white loaf.
