nutty brown bread

nutty brown bread

This comes from an old book of mine entitled the Irish Baking Book - no sign of it on Amazon or anywher else, but it has a lot of recipes from my childhood in it. 

I have no idea why this is called "nutty", but it is gorgeous nonetheless.

50g oatmeal
175g wholewheat flour
75g strong white (bread) flour
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 heaped tsp baking powder
250ml buttermilk (if you don't have it, just use half and half milk/yogurt)

Put the oatmeal, flours, sugar and baking powder into a bowl and mix together.  Add the buttermilk.  Mix everything with a wooden spoon, and knead slightly (or do what I do - Kitchenaid with a dough hook!)

Place the dough in a small greased loaf tin, and bake at 200C/gas 6 for 30-35 minutes.

The recipe says "eat withiin 24 hours" - you'll have trouble keeping it that long!
