How it goes
Mix all ingredients, until it forms a light, nearly runny dough, similar to the consistency of porridge. Flour a baking tin, pour in mixture and bake at 230 degrees for 14 minutes. Then drop temperature to 180 degrees. Fan Assisted Oven - reduce 160 over the same time-span and bake for an hour.
How to finish
Let the bread rest for 1 hour in the tin before taking it out. Fully cool out, on a wire rack.
What you get
Is a firm moist brown bread that works well cut hot or warm, but will also keep for a day or two with the moisture from the yoghurt and molasses. What you also get is the perfect accompaniment to our Wild garlic Pesto.
