Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 ounces Wholemeal flour (Me - 1 lb)
4 ounces White all purpose flour (Me 1/2 lb)
1 teaspoon (level) bread soda (Me..very heaped tsp)

I'm listing an actual recipe and the differences between it and what I do in brackets. Hope it won't be too confusing.

Sieve the cream flour, bread soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the wholemeal flour. Mix, make well in the centre and add sufficient milk to make a soft dough,mixing with a wooden spoon. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly until there are no cracks. Make circular shape with dough, place on a floured tin and cut a cross in the top. Bake preheated 400F/200C/Gas 6 for 40-45 mins. When baked bread should sound hoolow when tapped on base.
