THE Wheaten Bread

I was just baking some Wheaten Bread this morning and the thought struck me that I hadn’t shared my recipe on the olde blog and a few folks have requested this recipe recently, it’s so much easier to refer folks here than to write or print it out a few times over.

I’ve been baking this Wheaten Bread since I got married and loads of people have begged asked me for this recipe.  I think it’s fairly authentic Irish Wheaten Bread but it certainly far excells the stuff we buy in the shops here for sure.

Here goes

Wheaten Bread.

300gms flour

375gms Wheaten meal

150gms margarine

1 pint buttermilk

10mls baking soda

5ml salt

40 mls sugar.


Grease 2 loaf tins.  Sieve flour, salt & baking soda into a bowl.  Add wheaten meal and sugar.  Melt margarine and add.  Mix to a soft dough with the buttermilk.  Pour into 2 loaf tins.  Bake until golden brown.  Approx 30-35 minutes at 180 C.


Sorry the quantities are old measure but it was an old school recipe and I never did get round to converting it.
