2 very level teaspoons Bread Soda
2 large Eggs
1 dessertspoon Sunflower Oil
18 floz/500ml Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 170C/325F/GM 3
Place the wholemeal flour into a large mixing bowl.
Sift in the plain flour & bread soda.
Add the salt & porridge oats into this mixture and mix well.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs together with the oil, then make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg & oil mixture, and the buttermilk.
Incorporate the mixture & get the mix to a sloppy consistency.
Pour into a well greased 2lb/900g loaf tin, smooth the top with a wet spoon and sprinkle the top of the bread with some additional porridge oats.
After about an hour in the oven, remove the bread from the tin, turn upside down and pop the upside down bread back in; return to the oven and bake for a further 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool down before cutting it.
