One in t'oven

Paul ere.. Tonights offering is not Juice, Smoothies or Food, well it is.. But i decided to knock up a loaf in 60 mins. No bread machine, just fine handiwork, and a little patience is whats required.
Anyone can make a loaf of bread, its fairly easy once you get the hang of it.. Anyhow.. This is whats inside this 'lil' beauty
3 Cups of Organic Wholemeal Flour
1 cup of Organic White Flour
1tsp Bicarbonate Soda
1tsp Cream of Tartar
200ml Buttermilk (optional)
1/2tsp Salt
200g of Currants
1 Egg ( Glazing)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees
Mixing bowl+ spoon

Add wholemeal flour, add white flour, mix ingredients by hand.Add currants and mix again, add buttermilk and mix again, add bicarbonate soda, cream of tartar and salt and mix again, add water and mix yet again.

Bring mixture back out of mixing bowl and sift with additional flour until a dough is formed.
Add mixture to pre warmed silicone tin.
Mix organic egg in cup.. take a pastry brush and glaze over the top of the loaf.
Pop in pre heated oven for 60 mins, then remove and cool on tray for 1-2hrs.

Voila!!! one walloping loaf.. with no added shmuck or unhealthy ingredients.
