450g malted brown granary flour
2tsp salt
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
142ml buttermilk or natural yoghurt
150ml water


Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients.

Whisk the buttermilk/ yoghurt with the water and stir this mixture into the flour, to make it into a dough.

Shape and put onto a lined baking sheet. Cut a cross into the dough to form four or eight sections.

Bake for about 30 minutes in the pre-heated oven until hollow when tapped on the base.

Cool for at least 20 minutes – as tempting as it is!!!
