Bread again – but a little different

I continue to make River cottage soda bread and try to make my own little changes to add variety.

I have started putting the dough into a greased loaf tin instead of on a baking sheet, just for the convenience of cutting. This one has some pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in and a sprinkling of crushed, malted barley in the mix and on the top. The malted barley I got from The Real Ale Shop, here in Norfolk, UK.

The malted barley adds a delicious malty hint, if you use it, you really only need a tablespoon full!

Soda Bread

Soda bread is so easy to make. I know I’ve shown you this before but homemade bread is such a good example of the simple life……

…..and Soda bread is perfect when you find yourself short of bread.

I use the River Cottage recipe and if you don’t like the idea of kneading bread this is perfect, happy eating ! 🙂
