For this bread you do not need yeast and it is also ready in about 30 minutes. A good recipe for a Sunday morning! While the bread is baking, boil the eggs and squeeze some oranges. Still warm from the oven and with slightly salted melted butter on top, I can easily eat an entire loaf…


  • 500 g (1 lb/3⅓ cups) wholemeal (whole-wheat) flour


Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/Gas 6). Sieve the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add nearly all of the buttermilk to the mixture. If necessary add more buttermilk or more flour. Rapidly knead the mixture into a smooth dough, since the acid in the buttermilk will work immediately. Kneadi
