Brown Bread
John Gannon

The story behind my mum’s bread is that it was passed down from my gran. My mum changed the recipe a bit. My gran would make one loaf a day. My mum would have it for breakfast, lunch and supper with tea. At weekends, my mum would go out and help my dad on the farm. When she came back from the farm. She got a slice of bread with jam as a treat.

Here is my gran’s recipe

  • 50g brown flour
  • 1 teaspoon bread soda
  • 500ml milk
  • 50g butter
  • Almonds

And here is my mum’s recipe

  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g brown flour
  • 1 teaspoon bread soda
  • 500ml buttermilk
  • Poppy seeds
  • Almonds
