This is quick and easy to prepare because you don't have to wait for the dough to rise. The wholemeal flour makes it more filling and adds texture.

Ingredients
250g wholemeal plain flour
200g plain flour
half tsp bicarbonate of soda
half tsp cream of tartar
25g butter
300ml buttermilk
  1. Sift together the flours, bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Quickly stir in the buttermilk and combine until a dough is formed.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Mould into a round shape, place onto a lightly floured baking sheet, cut a cross in the top, and sprinkle with a little flour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 5 and bake for 25–30 minutes, until it sounds hollow when tapped.
Chefs tips
  • When sieving wholemeal flour, add back any bran that stays in the sieve after sifting.
  • You could add 75g mixed dried fruit and 1 tsp of mixed spice for a great fruit bread.
  • This soda bread is ideal for slicing and freezing – pop the slices straight into the toaster.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked.  Slice, then wrap in foil to freeze. You can then use slices as required.
