    This is my version of Irish wheat bread that I came up with because I really enjoy the density of the bread, but prefer it to be a little less dry.

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 1/4 cups bakers flour
    • 3 1/4 cups wholemeal plain flour
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons bicarb soda
    • 2 teaspoons white sugar
    • 60g butter, softened
    • 2 cups buttermilk
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 tablespoon buttermilk, extra
    • 1 teaspoon white sugar, extra

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Grease a shallow baking pan.
    2. Sift together the bakers flour, wholemeal flour, salt, bicarb soda and sugar in a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour mixture until combined. Make a well in the centre and pour in the combined oil and buttermilk. Stir to make a soft dough.
    3. Lightly knead the dough on a floured surface for 1 minute. Place the dough into the prepared pan and pat into a round loaf. Cut a cross into the top of the loaf, brush with the extra buttermilk and sprinkle with the extra sugar.
    4. Bake for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 180 degrees C; rotate pan and bake another 30 minutes.
    5. Allow loaf to cool on a wire rack before slicing.
