Presidential Brown Bread

Presidential Brown Bread
(makes 2 loaves)
450g wholemeal flour
175g plain flour
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
75g butter, softened
3 eggs, beaten
425-600ml buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 190ÂșC and line two loaf tins with baking paper. Sieve the flour, salt, sugar and bicarb. in a large bowl and mix to combine. (Or if you're lazy like me, just give it a good whisk!) Rub in the butter, then add the eggs and buttermilk (I usually use around 500ml) to make a wet mixture. Pour into your lined tines and bake for about 40 minutes. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire wire rack.
