This is my nannie’s brown bread. She got the recipe from her mum. Nowadays we have brown bread every day.


  • 3 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of bran
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 oz of butter
  • ½ teaspoon of bread soda
  • Teaspoon of sugar
  • ¼ of a pint of butter milk
  • ½ of a pint of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spoon of olive oil


Sieve flour, salt, sugar and soda into a bowl.

Add the bran, rub in the butter and mix well together.

Put the buttermilk, milk, egg and olive oil into a jug, mix it.

Then, knead for a few minutes.

Put into a warm loaf tin.

Cut a cross on top and put into a hot oven.
