Ingredients

  • 400g plain flour, plus extra to dust
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 125g cheese, crumbled or coarsely grated (we used Lancashire)
  • 300ml buttermilk (instead of buttermilk, you can use 200g natural yogurt mixed with 100ml milk)
  • 1 tbsp milk, to glaze

Step by step

Get ahead
Best eaten on the day of baking, but leftovers can be frozen, or reheated next day.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6 and dust a baking tray with flour.
  2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a mixing bowl, and add a couple of grindings of black pepper. Stir in most of the spring onions and cheese, keeping a little back for the top of the loaf.
  3. Make a well in the centre and add enough buttermilk to bring together into a clean ball. Add a little extra milk if needed.
  4. Shape into an 18cm round and put on the prepared tray. Mark the loaf into quarters, cutting almost all the way through. Brush with a little milk, then scatter the remaining spring onions and cheese on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the loaf is crisp and sounds hollow. Cool for at least 30 minutes on a wire rack before eating.
