Oat bread

This is a super easy, non yeast bread which I came across in Paul Hollywood’s British Baking. In this book he organises the bakes by region of the British Isles and includes some lovely old recipes. I like Irish soda bread and this oat bread is also from Ireland. If anything I prefer it to soda bread as it is less dry. When I make it next time I am going to substitute other flours – less refined/gluten free.

Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F


  • 75g wholemeal self raising flour
  • 50g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 100g oatmeal
  • 250g buttermilk


Mix the flours and salt with the butter to achieve breadcrumb consistency. If mixing in a processor or Thermomix pulse a few times. Add sugar and oatmeal. If using Thermomix use reverse action to avoid over processing the oatmeal while adding the buttermilk. This is a very wet mixture- it doesn’t look like a bread, more like a banana bread.

Bake for 45 minutes in a prepared loaf tin. I cooked mine in two mini loaf pans and cooked for 35 minutes.

I can see me making this more. Often than soda bread as I really like the addition of oatmeal.

Served with Thermomix marmalade- yum!
