  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 230°C (fan 210°C, gas mark 8).

  2. 2

    Place the flour, caster sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda and then the buttermilk.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 500g Seed and grain wholemeal bread flour
    • 400ml Buttermilk
    • 1tsp Salt
    • 1tsp White caster sugar
    • 2tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  3. 3

    Bring together to give a soft dough, fold over once or twice until smooth but don’t over knead as you need to keep as much air as possible in the dough.

  4. 4

    Turn the dough out onto a greased baking tray and shape into a round 4cm deep. Cut a deep cross in the centre to divide into 4, without cutting all the way through. Dust with a little extra flour before baking.

  5. 5

    Bake the bread immediately for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6) and bake for a further 30 minutes until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
