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.

oatmeal bread

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

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!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
