Trish Deseine’s “Borrowed” Soda Bread Recipe


I’m sure you all have your own recipe, but this one is extra special, and comes with its very own Christmas Michelin star for extra namedropping – Rob Lrawczyk’s soda bread.

For 8 
5 minutes preparation
40 minutes baking

225g wholemeal flour • 225 white organic flour • 1 tbsp wheatbran • 1 tbsp wheatgerm • 10g bread soda • 1 ½ tbsp dark brown sugar • 1 tsp salt • Around 350ml buttermilk • A handful of mixed seeds or a few oat flakes

1. Heat the oven to 180oC. Put all the dry ingredients into a large baking bowl and mix well.

2. Pour in the buttermilk and mix quickly and lightly with your fingers to make a dough. Add a little milk if it is too dry but don’t overwork the dough.

3. Make the bread into a round loaf, set it on a greased and floured baking tray and make a cross on the top with a knife, or put it in a medium loaf tin.

4. Sprinkle the seeds or the oat flakes on top and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Check with a skewer to make sure it is cooked throughout. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
