Somedays you just get the feeling to make. Something.Anything.  Yesterday I had the urge to bake some bread. I saw it in the YOU magazine on Sunday and just  really fancied it. It took absolutely no time to throw together and only 25 minutes to bake. And honestly, it was delicious, I was pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t no baker yet, and it on no level is the homemade gorgeousness of an Irish bakers (my aunt gets me the BEST soda bread when we go home to Ireland). But, a loaf of bread that fast, loaded with butter when its warm from the over. Hello. Yes. Please.


225g Whole meal flour, plus some for dusting

225g Plain flour

1tsp Caste Sugar

1tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp salt

2tbsp of sunflower seeds

1tbsp of pumpkin seeds

200g natural yogurt

200ml milk

2tsp rolled oats




Preheat the oven to 200c. Place a lidded casserole dish inside the oven to warm.

Place all the dry ingredients (except the oats) and mix together. Add the yoghurt and milk, combine to make a soft pliable dough, gathering any escaping seeds back into the mix.

Working quickly shape into a round loaf, place in the dish, top with a little flour. Score the top into a cross and scatter with the oats.

Replace the lid and bake for around 20 minutes. Remove the lid and bake for an extra 5 until a little brown. When the bread is cooked it should sound hollow when tapped on the base.


Enjoy! x
