This is a great recipe for brown soda bread.....the only problem is it gets eaten up very quickly indeed and I am in danger of putting the pounds on whenever it is within reach!
4 ounces white flour
12 ounces wheat flour
2 heaping tablespoons of wheat germ
1 heaping teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
tiny pinch of salt
1/2 pint of buttermilk
1 beaten egg
Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit. Blend the flours, then mix in the wheat germ, bicarbonate of soda, and salt. Blend in the beaten egg and buttermilk and combine well with a large fork. Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly. Shape into a round. Put on a greased, floured cookie sheet and cut a cross on the top. Dust the top with some flour. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Tap the bottom at the end of 40 minutes....if it sounds hollow, it is done.
Spread with butter or jam and enjoy!
