Savoury Soda Bread

How to make Savoury Soda Bread:

Serves: Makes 1 loaf
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

What You Need:

  • 250g strong white flour
  • 250g spelt flour
  • 50g oats
  • 3g salt
  • 20g baking powder
  • 60g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 100ml grapeseed oil
  • 450ml buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp Meridian yeast extract

What You Do:

1. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan and line a baking tray with parchment. In a large bowl combine the flours, oats, salt and baking powder then stir in 50g of the cheese.

2. In a separate jug beat the oil, buttermilk and yeast extract until the extract has combined. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the liquid. Splay your fingers out like a big fork and mix gently but quickly to combine to a dough. To get the lightest bread, minimise the amount you handle the dough.

3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat into a circle. Transfer to your baking sheet and scatter with the remaining cheese. Cut a large cross, deep into the dough and bake for 30-35 minutes until the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.

Delicious served with soup.
