Jen’s Brown Bread


This bread is so quick and easy to make.  I always make use of the oven if I’m cooking a roast dinner and whip up a batch of this bread too. No kneading or waiting on yeast to rise with this recipe.


200g plain flour

200g wholemeal flour

2 tbsp. brown linseeds ( I get mine in Tesco)

1 tbsp. bread soda/ bicarbonate of soda, sifted

1 tbsp. oil ( I used rapeseed oil)

1 tbsp. treacle

1 tsp Himalayan pink rock salt

350ml buttermilk


Preheat oven to 180c (Fan).

In a large  bowl mix the plain flour, wholemeal flour, bread soda, linseeds and salt.

Make a well in the centre and add the oil and treacle.

Gradually add the milk and mix well.

Pour into a lined bread tin and bake for 40 – 45 minutes.

When cooked the base should make a hollow sound if tapped or just use a skewer to test if it’s ready!
