Irish recipes

INGREDIENTS:

200g of wholegrain flour
275g strong white flour
350ml buttermilk
1 generous tsp of bicarbonate of soda
1 large free-range egg
1 tsp honey
A pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Grease and flour a 900g loaf tin. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and salt in a mixing bowl. This is where you can add in any additional flavourings you like too. In a Pyrex measuring jug, measure out the buttermilk and then whisk in the egg and honey.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and then pour in the wet mixture. Add a little extra flour if you find the dough is too wet and sticky. Using a wooden spoon, bring the mix together to form a dough. Shape into a rough oval and place in the loaf tin.

Sprinkle with a little flour on top and bake in the oven for 35 minutes. The bread is cooked when you can turn it out on a wire rack, and when the bottom is tapped it should sound hollow. Allow to cool before slicing and enjoying with a little butter.
