Brown Bread

This recipe is for the Best Brown Bread ever, stolen from a very good friend of mine. It’s so simple to make and tastes brilliant.

  • 8oz Wholemeal Flour
  • 2oz Porridge
  • 1oz Wheatgerm
  • 1oz Wheatbran
  • 1oz Pinhead Oatmeal
  • 1/2 oz Butter
  • 3/4 Pint Buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar

Seeds and fruit are at your discretion, I generally use:

  • Poppy Seeds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Sesame Seeds

Fruit – Apricots are really nice in it or Sultanas. Crushed mixed nuts are a nice alternative too.

Now for the Science Bit..

  • Add all the dry ingredients in together, seeds, fruit etc.
  • Mix well
  • Rub in the butter
  • Add the buttermilk
  • Mix well, consistency should be similar to soggy Wheetabix !!!!
  • Pour into greased tin or silicone mould
  • 15 mins in a fan oven @ 225 degrees then reduce temp 200 degrees for 30 mins.
