Oh WOW! That’s all I’m going to say, well apart from, you have to try this. I am always looking for something different and this little recipe came from Kitchen Aid . Usually, I follow a recipe then on my second attempt change it up a little and experiment, but not on this one, it simply is delicious. Especially with some vintage cheddar…Mmmmmm.

 

450g plain flour

50g Rye flour – I used wholemeal

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

45g melted salted butter

1 tbsp treacle

325ml buttermilk

200g walnut pieces

 

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 deg. I used the convection bake setting.
  2. Place the flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl and stir together. Make a large hole in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the melted butter and treacle, walnut pieces plus enough of the buttermilk to make a loose sticky dough.
  3. Tip the dough onto a lightly dusted work surface. The dough will be quite sticky. Shape it into a large ball with a taut top. Place the dough on a floured baking tray and flatten it a bit. Using a knife, score the bread

  4.  Dust with flour then bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and has risen.                                                                      20180824_101705
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve with some lovely cheddar or simply butter.
