Mar 21, 2020

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 50-55 minutes
Makes: 1 loaf

  • 250g The Little Mill Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • 250g The Little Mill Plain White
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp clear honey (optional)
  • 440ml buttermilk
  • One 2Ib Loaf Tin

Preheat the oven to 180oC, gas mark 4. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin.
Place both flours in a large mixing bowl, sieve in the baking soda and add the sea salt. Mix together to make sure the soda is fully dispersed.

Add the honey and the buttermilk. Mix using a spatula or by hand until a smooth lump-free soft dough is made.
Place the dough in the prepared loaf tin and pat down. Cut the dough down the center lengthways with a knife and bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes or as required.

Turn onto cooling wire after baking to allow to cool.

Tip: Try sprinkling some wheat or porridge flakes on top of the dough prior to baking for decoration but this is optional.
