Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g wholemeal flour
300g plain flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
90g butter
30g parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon chives, snipped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
500ml buttermilk

Method

  1. Sift flours, salt, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl. Rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in herbs, then buttermilk until dough forms a ball. Knead very lightly until smooth.
  2. Place on a greased baking tray and form into a 20 cm round. Using a sharp, floured knife, cut a cross 1 cm deep in the top.
  3. Bake in a preheated moderately hot oven for 40–50 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on bottom. Serve warm or at room temperature, sliced, with plenty of butter and a sharp cheddar, if liked.
