This soda bread is not only highly nutritious and delicious but super quick and easy to prepare. The hemp seeds give the bread a slightly crunchy, granary texture, alternatively, you could replace the whole seeds with hemp hearts (inner hulled seeds).

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes


325g wholemeal flour

50g hemp seeds

25g hemp seed hearts (dehulled hemp seeds)

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

300ml of milk (dairy or plant milk)

1 tbsp lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar)

1 tsp Honey

A pinch of salt


1)Preheat oven to 200 degs /180 degrees C fan oven. Dust a baking tray with a little plain flour

2) Mix all the dry ingredients together thoroughly.

3) Add the lemon juice/apple cider vinegar and honey to the milk. Wait for five minutes.

4) Make a hole in the flour mixture and slowly pour the milk in and mix together with a knife until the whole thing comes together into a sticky dough.

5) Take the dough and make into a ball. (No needing!)

6) Put the ball on the tray and use a sharp knife to make a deep cross across the top. This helps the dough cook through.

Put in the oven for 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Happy baking.
