250g wholemeal flour

100g porridge oats

1 tsp salt

25g butter, cut into cubes

500ml buttermilk

Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.

Dust a baking tray with a little flour.

Mix the flour, porridge oats, bicarbonate soda and salt together.

Rub in the cubed butter with your fingertips. Pour over the buttermilk and bring the dough together.

Shape into a flat round, place on the baking sheet and score a deep cross on the top.

Bake for 30 minutes until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
