    This is pure comfort food. There is nothing nicer than to cuddle up with my girlfriend in front of a warm fire and a movie while munching on thick slices of this bread hot from the oven dripping with melted country butter and warm honey and a big mug of milky tea.

    A very easy bread. Best if made the day before, or several hours before serving.

    This is a wholemeal version of soda bread, locally called wheaten bread. This is made into a small round loaf and is my favourite type. Very quick and easy to make too! It's delicious with butter and honey or a slice of Chedder and thinly sliced red onion.

    My mum has been making this wheaten soda bread on a daily basis for the last 30 years - in fact, maybe more than that! Recently, she started sprinkling the dough with sesame and pumpkin seeds which adds a delicious nutty flavour to it.

    A little melted butter and an egg add extra richness to a basic soda bread. Wrap in a tea towel while cooling if you prefer a softer crust.

    My mum bugged grandpa for this recipe but he told her he didn't have one. So, when he made the bread one day she captured each ingredient in a bowl and measured it and put it in the bowl he planned to mix it in!

    This recipe was given to me by my mother, Agnes Walters. It is made with soured cream and always comes out moist and keeps for several days.
