Makes 1 round loaf
400g Odlums Spelt Wholemeal Flour, plus more for dusting
1 tsp Odlums Bread Soda
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp honey
250ml buttermilk
2½ tbsp vegetable oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5 and dust a baking tray with flour. 
  2. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl, sieve in the bread soda and salt and stir to combine.
  3. Whisk the honey, buttermilk and oil in a separate bowl, then gradually stir into the dry ingredients until a smooth dough forms.
  4. Dust a work surface with flour and gently knead the bread for a minute to form it into a round loaf.
  5. Place it on the prepared tray and use a sharp knife to cut a square across the top of the loaf. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Note: sunflower oil can be used as an alternative to vegetable oil, if you wish.
