No Added Salt, Sugar, or Fat, Bread

Recipes are not my forte. I am not one of those lucky people who derives comfort and pleasure from culinary activities. Cooking and baking are duties, not hobbies.  However, in these days of salt, sugar and fat-loaded EVERYTHING, I really want to share a recipe.  (Makes FOUR loaves at the one time, so you are also saving on electricity.)

 Two Pounds of Wholemeal Flour
8 Ounces of Pinhead Oatmeal
4 Ounces of Wheatgerm
4 Teaspoons of Bread Soda
4 Large Eggs
40 Fluid Ounces
 of Buttermilk

 Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees Centigrade

Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl

Rub out all lumps from the baking soda before adding.

Add all the wet ingredients and stir well.

Pour the mixture into four greased loaf tins and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Bake in the middle shelf of oven for 55 minutes

Wrap in a tea towel and allow to cool for a few hours before wrapping in cling film and placing (three loaves) in the freezer.

Of course, you keep one out to sample immediately.
Bon Appetit!
