Anyway for this Instructable you need:
170g/6oz self-raising wholemeal flour
170g/6oz plain flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
290ml/½ pint buttermilk
Some red and yellow coloring, for food
a kitchen scale
Step 1: Mix the Flours and Make a Dough
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C/Gas 6.
Tip the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl and stir.
Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk, mixing quickly with a large fork to form a soft dough. (Depending upon the absorbency of the flour, you may need to add a little milk if the dough seems too stiff but it should not be too wet or sticky.)
Add a tsp of yellow color for food and keep working on the dough until the color itself is completely spread.
Step 2: Make a Dough With the Shape of Instructables Robot
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly.
Form into a round and flatten the dough slightly before placing on a lightly floured baking sheet.
Now, copying Instructables robot logo, try to shape your dough in the best way you can.
Step 3: Bake It in the Oven
Put some red color for food on the eyes and the ears of the robot.
Bake it for about 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack.
