Porridge brown bread
This is a particularly easy brown bread recipe. The bread is moist and nutty. Delicious!

2 tsp of bread soda

2 tbsp of oil (we used rapeseed oil)

1 large tub of natural yogurt (500 ml)
2 tubs of porridge oats
Optional: handful of sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds.

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4. Grease standard loaf tin (2lbs/900g - 18.5 x 11.5 x 9cm).

 Place bread soda, oil and the yogurt in a mixing bowl.

Using the same yogurt tub measure 2 tubs of porridge oats and add to the bowl. Add your favourite seeds at this point. Stir thoroughly.

Pour the batter into your loaf tin.

Place in the oven and cook for approx. 45 mins (depending on your oven).

Ten minutes before the end of cooking time, remove the bread from the tin, turn upside down and cook for remaining 10 mins.

Leave to cool on wire tray wrapped in clean tea towel.

Level of Difficulty

The trick with this recipe is to know your oven. The danger is that it looks very well cooked, but the inside is still too moist. It may take a few attempts to get it just right.
