Nettle soda bread

Nettle Soda bread

  • 500g Plain flour
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 400ml live yoghurt or buttermilk
  • 2 large handfuls of nettles (blanched, drained and chopped)

Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the yoghurt and nettles and bring together to form a dough. Do not knead the dough. Oil a dutch oven if you are cooking on a camp fire or a baking tray if you are using a conventional oven. Form the dough in to a dome and  either put it in the dutch oven or on the baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes on the camp fire or half and hour in an oven at 180 degrees / gas mark 4

If you want to make herb soda bread omit the nettles, add herbs of your choice, and a little milk to bind.
