Combine all the dry ingredients together. Beat the egg into the water and buttermilk and pour into the dry ingredients.

Mix together thoroughly to make quite a wet consistency. Don’t let this put you off or make you think you need to add more flour. It’s meant to be like this. Adding more flour will make it too dry and crumbly.

Divide the mixture evenly in the tins and place on the mid to high shelf of the oven. Sprinkle with a few seeds if desired.

After 15 minutes, turn down the heat to Gas mark 4, (302oF) 150oc and bake for a further 30 minutes.

Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

This makes a delicious light, tasty loaf which will keep for 2 – 3 days in a cool dry place.
