This really is the best recipe for this so simple bread.. And oh my gladness.. It’s simple indeed..
170 white flour
170 brown flour
Teaspoon of salt
Teaspoon of baking soda
Carton ( about 290ml) of buttermilk
That’s it! Nothing else or the heritage cops will be straight after you.. Adding fruit or peel changes the story..
I think buttermilk gets a hard time, as it has the word butter in it people think it’s bad.. It’s actually very good for you! Of course in a limited way yet I strongly believe that out of the milky world this is the bestest..
So get everything into a bowl.. It’s funny yet I struggle with getting icky fingers! So breathe deep and get on with it.. I do!
And mix with fingers and knead just a little.. It will all stick together and feel quite smooth..
No proving punching covering etc etc etc..
I repeated the above three times as had buttermilk to use up.. Yeah we have that kinda house!
Three loaves there .. Slashed at least a third of the way down and dusted with flour..
Into the hot oven.. 200 degrees real money ..
For thirty minutes..
Taken out to cool..
Cut and eaten spankin fresh with a salted butter..
As we don’t really eat bread this is a great bread that is so easily digested..
Lovely doodle dandy..
