Gloriously nutty soda bread

Posted: October 7, 2012 by nietize in Bread

Waitrose recipe

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.

  1. Soda bread is just unique in taste. It is healthy and nutritious. You have made it perfectly.

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