Ingredients
  1. 6oz plain flour
  2. 6oz self-raising whole-meal flour
  3. ½ pint buttermilk
  4. ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  5. ½ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Warm up your oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Place the flours in a large mixing bowl and stir in a dash of salt as well as soda bicarbonate until well combined. Make a shallow depression in the center of the flour mixture with two fingers and add the buttermilk into it.
  3. Work them together with a large fork until they gather to form a soft dough. Add more buttermilk if necessary to prevent the dough from being too stiff.
  4. Flour a flat working area lightly and place the dough on it. Knead it for several minutes until it turns pliable and roll it into a large ball.
  5. Press its surface gently to flatten it out and place it on a lightly floured cookie sheet. Make two shallow slashes on top of the dough to form a cross and place in the hot oven.
  6. Bake for half an hour, until the bread is baked through and emits a hollow sound when tapped. Remove from oven and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Serve and enjoy with stews or soups.
