  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 285ml buttermilk or low-fat natural yoghurt

  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard or normal if you can't find that

  • 3 tbsp semi-skimmed milk

  • 450g plain flour plus extra for kneading and dusting)

  • 150g mature cheddar cheese coarsely grated - it can take lots more than this if you like your bread extra-cheesy


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas Mark 7. Mix the flour, salt, bicarb and cheddar in a big bowl
  2. Mix together the buttermilk or yoghurt, milk and mustard then pour into the bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon then your hands, bring together to make a soft dough. Knead lightly until smooth then shape into a 22cm round loaf.
  3. Cut the round into eight wedges then transfer to a non-stick baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little flour and bake for 20-25 minutes, until browned and crusty. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. Eat warm, maybe with with some roasted cherry tomatoes and bacon.

Handy Hint

I had it as part of a Ploughman's lunch. Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave or toasted.
