When I was a little kid one of my favourite things was arriving at my Granny’s house and being served home made Irish brown bread with rhubarb jam. Still to this day it brings me back to my Granddad and I eyeing up the last slice and his wink of knowing he was giving it to me 🙂
Bread has always been my weakness in life and I’ve been really lucky to have always been surrounded by people who loved to make it. My Mam – a.k.a the ‘Granny’ in ‘Grannys 10 Minute Brown Bread’ recently gave me her own recipe and told me to tweak it to suit Oscar. She said “he can’t get enough of it in my house so your going to have to make it for him”. It seems like my little man is taking after his own mother.
This recipe is the quickest brown bread you’ll ever make, and the most delicious. I have made it using both wheat flour and buckwheat and both are good. It is full of seeds that pack a punch and make this an insanely healthy bread. For smaller babies I cut the crust off and give them the super soft inside. It works brilliant for soup, dipping, with chia seed jam or with some nut butter spread on it.
