Quick carrot & walnut bread recipe

Very quick and so easy to make with great texture and wonderful crust.Much of the bread we buy has all sorts of unnecessary additives.To make this bread you don't need a bread maker, you don’t even need a bread tin.All you need is a bowl, oven, a small surface on which to mix the bread, a baking tray and the ingredients to make a really simple, really great loaf of bread – hot, out of the oven, with butter or anything else you fancy.

250g plain flour
250g wholemeal flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
150g carrots , peeled and grated
a handful walnuts, toasted
300ml Greek style white yogurt
125ml milk
sesami or other seeds

  1. Heat oven to 230C/fan 210C/gas 8. Mix the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda, then stir in the carrot, walnuts and yogurt, followed by enough of the milk to make a soft, quite sticky dough.
  2. Tip onto a floured surface and form a flat ball, put on a baking sheet, slash the top,sprinkle with seeds and bake for 30 minutes until risen and baked. Its ready when a skewer comes out clean from the bread.
