Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread, and I was on a mission to start baking my own bread. I wanted it to be tasty and healthy, so I ended up modifying a recipe I found online, I've basically increased the wholemeal flour content, reduced the salt, and replaced buttermilk with mock buttermilk (I find it hard to find buttermilk in most supermarkets in Australia). Enjoy!

Ingredients
1/2 cup of plain flour
1 1/2 cups of wholemeal flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of bicarb soda
1 cup of mock buttermilk (ie. add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of milk, stir, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then it's ready to use)

extra flour for dusting/handling dough

Method
1) Mix the flour, salt and bicarb soda together in a big bowl (make sure that the bicarb soda is evenly mixed throughout the mixture).

2) Add the mock buttermilk to the flour mixture (it's easiest to create a small well in the centre of the flour, then add the buttermilk into the well/hole gradually, while stirring/combining the flour into the buttermilk).

3) Once all the buttermilk and flour mixture comes together, it should start to form a soft dough, flour a clean surface with some flour (ideally wholemeal flour), and tip the dough onto the surface.

4) No kneading is required, simply pull the dough together, and gently shape into a round ball (use your hands to tuck in the dough underneath to give the dough some tension on the top).

5) Add some extra wholemeal flour on top (to help give it an extra crunchy crust).

6) Place the dough on a baking tray (either greased or lined with baking paper).

7) Use a knife to cut the dough 4 times on the edges (in quarters) to help the dough to bake evenly.

8) Bake in an oven at 200 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes.

9) Put a knife or skewer through the centre of the bread, if it comes out clean, the bread is ready. Or you can also try flipping the bread, and tapping the base. When the bread is ready, when you tap it, it will sound hollow.
