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.
