Wholegrain Spelt Soda Bread

I truly believe that people who don't eat bread are not as happy as those who do. They may say they are but secretly when the unmistakable smell of freshly baked bread wafts by their noses, a part of them dies. Or something like that! Nothing beats fresh homemade bread, it's nutritious and most importantly, absolutely scrummy! You may not be able to buy happiness, but you can bake it!

This is an incredibly easy bread to make and can be ready start-to-finish in an hour, what more could you want!? Here's what you'll need (I've linked the products I used below):

350g of wholegrain spelt flour 
50g of porridge oats 
1 tablespoon of runny honey
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 heaped teaspoon of bread soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil - or any other light flavoured oil
300ml of milk
125g whole yogurt
1 tablespoon of sesame, pumpkin and sunflower seeds  

As this requires no kneading and relies on bread soda to make the bread rise you need to work quickly so it's easiest to separate the wet and dry ingredients before combining them all together. 

Once you've combined everything together pour the mixture into a lined loaf tin, spread evenly,  sprinkle with seeds and bake at 200C for 45-55 mins. It should be nice and golden on top and sound hollow when tapped. Allow to cool and enjoy pure happiness!
