Soda Bread in the Portmerion for AGA Stacking Casserole


450g plain flour

1-2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

55g pumpkin seeds

25g linseed or sesame seeds

55g sunflower seeds

Approximately 400ml buttermilk

Serves 4


1. Sieve the flour with the bicarbonate of soda and salt and add the seeds. Make a well in the centre and add most of the milk.

2. Working quickly, mix to a softish dough. When it forms a ball, turn it on to a well-floured surface and lightly work into a flattened loaf, approx. 20cm diameter. 

3. Place on a baking sheet on a rectangle of Bake-O-Glide lightly dusted with flour and use a sharp knife to cut a deep cross in the top.

4. Bake on the grid shelf placed on the floor of the roasting oven (or oven on R6 setting) for 30-35 minutes or until the bread is golden and cooked through.

Tip: You can use this recipe to make individual scones, simply reduce the cooking time to 10-15 minutes.
