[Recipe] Irish Brown Bread

This delicious bread recipe is easy to make and works great with breakfast. Remember to make a large X shape on-top of the bread. This recipe makes about 24 slices.


  • 2 cups Whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Wheat germ
  • 2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Buttermilk, low-fat
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Have a baking tray at the ready.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ, baking soda and salt. Combine (use a whisk).
  3. Add the buttermilk and egg. Mix with hands until fully combined.
  4. Flour the counter top and place the dough on top.
  5. Gently kneed for 8-10 minutes. Please note the dough will be sticky.
  6. Make a loose ball and place on the baking tray. Form gently into a round-ish shape. Dust the top of the dough with flour.
  7. Press an X shape onto the top (about 1-2cm deep).
  8. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. The bread should split where you made the X and should have a hollow sound when tapped.
  9. Place on a cooling rack and cool for 2 or more hours.
  10. Slice, serve and enjoy!
