My granddad in Cork told me that his mother made brown bread like this recipe every morning and served it with home-made butter.


  • 1 lb Wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon bread soda
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons wheat bran
  • 1 Egg
  • 15 fluid oz buttermilk


Put wholemeal, wheat bran, bread soda, brown sugar into mixing bowl. Mix the egg and buttermilk together and pour into the dry ingredients.  Mix well together.  Put the mixture into a greased bread tin.  Flatten down and sprinkle oats on top if liked.  Bake in a preheated oven 180oC/350oF/Gas 4.
