New terms – Baking

Is it time to learn some new terminology?   I think it is.  Let’s look at some baking terms.  Idoia loves my brown bread.  If you wish you can bake it and post it to her.  Then, on your next Zoom lesson, you can eat brown bread together!

This recipe is for soda bread.  I do not know what ‘soda’ is in Spanish, so you will have to find a direct translation if you decide to make the bread.

Here is the list of ingredients:

200g wholemeal flour  (also called brown flour)

50g  plain flour (also called cream flour)

50g pinhead oatmeal

25g wheatgerm

1 tsp bread soda

1 large egg (optional)

300ml buttermilk

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Pour into 2lb lined loaf tin and bake in a pre-heated oven (160 C) for 40 – 50 minutes until outside is brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Enjoy !

Recipe Notes:

You can substitute pinhead oatmeal /wheat germ for other small seeds or just increase the amount of wholemeal flour

You can substitute butter milk for a mix of natural yoghurt /milk or natural yoghurt / water at a rate of 50:50
