Step 1: Preparation

Preheat the oven to 180'C (Gas Mark 4)

Grease a small loaf tin (approx. 3.5 X 2 X 7.5 inch) with butter, use your fingers to get into the corners. Put a tsp of flour into the tin and shake it around. The flour will stick to the butter and coat the inside of the tin, making it easier to remove the loaf when finished.

Step 2: Mix the Dry

Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl: Flours, salt, bread soda, sugar, oat bran, wheat germ and oatmeal. Mix well.

Step 3: Mix the Wet

Crack the egg into a measuring jug. Add the buttermilk slowly until the mixture reaches the 1/2 pint mark. Mix this with a fork until the egg and milk combine.

Step 4: Bring It Together

Pour the wet mix into the dry mix bowl and stir. Give it a good mix to make sure there are no dry pockets.

Step 5: One in the Oven

Pour the sloppy mix into the loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven (180'C) for 30-35 minutes.

**TIP - Do Not Open The Oven While The Bread Is Baking, as it will fail to rise**

When the loaf is cooked remove from the tin by turning it upside down and let it cool on a wire rack.

Best served while still warm with real creamy butter.

Enjoy!

    If you don't have buttermilk you can use a 50/50, natural yogurt and milk mix!

    This looks simple enough that even a non-cook type like me could make it. Nice!
