Apple and walnut soda bread

This loaf is so easy to make and requires little time! In about 40 minutes you can have a freshly baked, fragrant loaf to serve with your meal. Unlike most soda breads this one is nice and moist with a delicate sweetness.  It’s delicious with melted cheese and soup or simply sliced and toasted for breakfast with butter and honey.

150g plain flour

200g wholemeal flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 apples peeled and grated

50g butter melted

2 tbsp honey

1 egg, beaten

250ml apple juice

50g chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 180c. Grease a baking tin ( approx 20cm x 10cm) with butter and a dusting of flour. Combine flour, salt and soda and add the grated apple. Top with butter, honey, egg,  juice and nuts ( saving a few to sprinkle on the top) ,gently fold all the ingredients together but don’t over –mix. Spoon into the prepared tin, sprinkle the reserved nuts on the top, bake for 30 mins or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from the tin and serving.
