450g malted brown granary flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
142ml buttermilk/ natural yoghurt/milk with lemon juice
Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
In a measuring jug mix the buttermilk and water and then stir into the dry ingredients and mix it into a dough. Shape into a ball and cup underneath until perfectly round!
Put onto a lined baking sheet and give it a good dusting of flour and cut ¼” deep lines across the loaf to form four or eight sections.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes in the pre-heated oven until hollow when tapped on the base.
