Waitrose recipe
Ingredients:

250g plain wholemeal flour, plus extra for dusting
250g plain white flour
25g essential Waitrose Butter
150g Dorset Cereals Gloriously Nutty
25g Waitrose Golden Caster Sugar
1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 x 284ml cartons buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Place the flours in a large bowl then, using your fingertips, rub in the butter.

Stir in the Dorset Cereals Gloriously Nutty, sugar and bicarbonate of soda. Make a well in the centre, pour in the buttermilk and quickly bring together to make a very soft and sticky dough.

Tip the dough onto a heavily floured surface and, with dusted hands, roughly pat the dough into a 20cm round. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet and cut a deep cross in the top. Bake for 35–40 minutes until dark brown and completely cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack, cover with a clean tea towel and leave to cool before slicing.

And the gf steps in to do the stuff I don’t normally do on this blog! It is or at least it seems to be since I didn’t make it quite a simple recipe but it’s really good. I love the nuts and fruits in it.

      Thanks! I like its texture; it’s like a cross between cake and bread, and it sits nicely in the middle of the two.
