Orange and Poppy Seed Spelt Bread

Makes 1 loaf

Far from being just a humble, wholemeal soda bread this loaf is rustic, fragrant and toothsome. Best eaten on the day of baking, I serve slices simply spread with butter and homemade jam or honey. For a lighter version swap your wholemeal flour with white Spelt flour.

Free from Egg, Soya, Nuts
Vegetarian, Organic, Without crystal sugar

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment and pre-heat the oven.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, poppy seeds and grated orange rind into a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add the yogurt, orange juice, and honey, and stir to mix.
  4. Use your hands to bring together a soft ball of dough before shaping it into an oval, 25cm/10” long.
  5. Transfer the loaf to the prepared baking tray.
  6. Dust the top with flour and using a sharp knife make diagonal cuts across the top of the loaf. Repeat the cuts in the opposite direction to form a criss-cross pattern.
  7. Bake for 75-80 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and wrap the bread in a clean tea towel while it cools.
