Shane’s delicious wholemeal rye soda bread is a hearty loaf that’s perfect for sandwiches or slathered with butter. Rye flour is packed with nutrients that aids healthy digestion as it’s a great source of fibre, adding porridge oats to the loaf gives a fabulous texture. This soda bread couldn’t be simpler to make and can be rustled up in under an hour! This is definitely one to try at home.

  • Ingredients

    • 250g wholemeal flour
    • 100g rye flour
    • 20g porridge oats
    • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 tsp salt
    • Pinch caraway seeds (optional)
    • 1 medium egg
    • 250ml buttermilk
    • 30g treacle
  • Method

    • Preheat your oven to 200C/180C fan.
    • Put the treacle into a bowl and add 100ml of buttermilk and gently heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and mix together until blended.
    • Add this mixture to the remaining buttermilk and set aside.
    • Into the bowl of your Kenwood stand mixer, add the wholemeal flour, rye flour, porridge oats, soda, salt and caraway seeds (if using).
    • Fitted with the k-beater attachment, mix these ingredients together until blended.
    • To this, add the egg, buttermilk & treacle.
    • Mix until just combined and turn out onto a floured work surface.
    • This is a wet mixture so you can add more flour to the table if needed.
    • Shape the soda bread dough into a round shape and pace on a lined baking tray.
    • Using the back of a knife make a cross indent across the top of the loaf and place directly into the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
    • Once baked, remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
