How to make Kate Humble’s dark sugar and oat soda bread
Patience is needed to make this recipe, as you’ll have to wait 15 minutes to let the oats soak before you can really get stuck in and get your hands messy. Then, the baking time in the oven takes 45 minutes.
All worth it for this delicious bread – and the steps are pretty easy!
Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 C.
Step 2: Soak oats in boiled water for 15 mins in the large bowl
Step 3: Add butter from side plate into bowl, which will just melt from heat of the water.
Step 4: Add yogurt, milk, and sugar. Mix using a spoon.
Step 5: Stir the flour, bicarb and salt into the mixture using same spoon
Step 6: Pour mixture into greased and lined cake tin.
Step 7: Cover with foil and bake in oven for 15 minutes.
Step 8: Wearing oven gloves, remove the foil and bake for a further 30 minutes.
Step 9: Wearing oven gloves, remove from and place on cooling rack.
Step 10: Once it has cooled, try the bread for yourself!
