FRUIT AND NUT SODA BREAD


FRUIT AND NUT SODA BREAD

This is perfect with Fen Farm Dairy’s luscious Baron Bigod cheese, or just spread with its raw butter.

It’s so easy - just mix it up and pop it in the oven - no kneading and proving required.

It’s a wetter dough than most soda breads so you’ll need a 2lb/1kg loaf tin to bake it in.

Ingredients:

350g wholemeal flour

150g plain white flour

15g bran

1 1/2 tspn bicarbonate of soda

1 1/4 tspn salt

1 tbsp soft brown sugar

1 tbsp chopped toasted hazelnuts

1 tbsp raisins or sultanas

600ml Fen Farm Dairy buttermilk

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6.

Stir all the dry ingredients together, then stir in the buttermilk to form a dropping consistency.

Pour into a very well-greased 2lb/1kg loaf tin and place immediately in the oven.

Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Turn out of the tin and cool on a wire rack for a crusty exterior or wrap in a tea towel for a softer loaf. Allow to cool before slicing.
