Ingredients

This recipe include 1 tsp of our PureSea Natural

170g Self-raising wholemeal flour

170g Plain flour

1 tsp Seaweed

½ tsp Bicarbonate of soda 

.

290ml Buttermilk

 

Method

Preheat the oven to 400F/200C/Gas 6. Tip the flours, seaweed and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl & stir. Make a well in the centre and pour in the buttermilk, mix with a fork to form a soft dough. (You may need to add a little milk if the dough seems too stiff but it should not be wet or sticky.) Turn onto a lightly floured surface & knead briefly. Form into a round and flatten the dough slightly before placing on a lightly floured baking sheet. Cut a cross on the top and bake for about 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
