In my beginnings to attempt to make bread I decided to start with some lovely Irish Wheaten bread. Possibly the simplest bread you can make because the there is no need for kneading or proofing. It can be done in 35 minutes from weighing your ingredients to taking it out of the oven.
Wheaten bread was a discovery my wife introduced me to and being she Irish knows exactly how it should be. However, with my Scottish influence and the fact that I like to use oats in everything I can confirm they have been added. This is something to try if you haven’t made bread before, it’s so simple and you will really enjoy the result.
284ml of Buttermilk
300 grams of wholemeal flour
half a teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil
5 tablespoons of oatmeal
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1. Mix the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together. Add the buttermilk and mix well.
2. Add the golden syrup and oil and mix.
3. In a greased loaf tin or greased circular oven dish add half the oatmeal to the bottom.
4. Add the mixture and scatter remaining oatmeal.
5. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for aproxiamately 25 to 30 minutes dependant on tin or dish.
