this should be similiar

  • 4 oz = 125 g plain flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon breadsoda
  • 1 level teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz = 350 g whole wheat flour
  • 2 oz = 30 g bran
  • 1 level teaspoon caster (*) sugar (optional)
  • 1 oz = 25 g margarine
  • 1 carton natural yoghurt (size 5.5 oz = 150 g)
  • 1 egg
  • fresh milk see method
  • Oven Temperature: preheat to gas mark 7 = 425°F = 220°C
  • Oven shelf = third from top
  • Tin size: a deep 7 to 7.5 inch = 18 to 19 cm round cake tin
. Method
  1. Lightly grease the tin with melted margarine and dust out with whole wheat flour.
  2. Sieve the plain flour, breadsoda and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the whole wheat meal, bran and sugar (if using). Mix thoroughly, lifting the fingers high, allowing the mixed flour and bran to fall back into the bowl through the fingers. Rub in the margarine and repeat.
  4. Beat the yoghurt and egg together and add enough milk to make the mixture up to almost 3/4 pint = 425 ml.
  5. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in the yoghurt mixture and mix quickly with a fork.
  6. Turn the dough out on to a table or board already dusted with flour and knead lightly.
  7. Place the dough into the prepared tin, smooth the surface and cut a deep cross on top. Brush the top with a little beaten egg or milk, and dust with whole wheat flour.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until well risen and golden brown.
  9. Turn out of the tin and tap the base of the bread; it should sound hollow,
