This sundried tomato and feta soda bread is the perfect recipe for the time poor or bread making beginners; it’s incredibly simple with delicious results.

Take out the tomato and feta and you’ve got a homemade white loaf to last you the week.

Ingredients

500g plain white flour

200g sundried tomatoes, drained

200g feta, crumbled

360ml buttermilk

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp fine sea salt

For decoration

Sprigs of rosemary

Method

n Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roughly chop the sundried tomatoes and set aside with the crumbled feta.

n Put the flour, bicarb and sea salt in large mixing bowl and stir to combine.

n Make a well in the centre and pour in the buttermilk. Bringing the flour in from the sides, stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture starts to come together as dough.

n At this point dust the work surface with a little flour and tip the mixture out, kneading until it forms a smooth ball of dough.

n Start to knead in the sundried tomato and feta, a handful at a time. Once combined, shape the dough into a ball.

n Dust a baking tray with flour and transfer the dough to the tray, then stud the outside with rosemary sprigs.

n Bake for 30 minutes until golden and cooked through. Allow the loaf to cool before slicing.
