Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Bread

If you're looking for something a little different to serve instead of garlic bread, this Sun-dried Tomato bread is what you need... I make it to serve with Lasagna, but it goes really well with pasta or any other Italian dish, and its really yummmmyy to snack on with butter or Pesto spread on top -- It's extremely easy to make, its basically a soda bread recipe with a few small tweaks - Hope you like it, here goes.....


1 lb/455g Plain flour
1 tsp Bread Soda
2 pinches Salt
1 tbsp Ground Basil
2 large handfuls of sun-dried tomatoes (roughly chopped)
500ml Buttermilk

1) Preheat the oven to 180C/ 350F/ Gas Mark 4
2) Put the flour, salt, basil and chopped sun-dried tomatoes in a large bowl & mix
3) Sieve the bread soda into the mixture & mix again
4) Make a hole in the middle of the dry mixture and pour in the buttermilk
5) Mix well - the mixture should "plop" off the spoon - if its too runny, add more flour and if its too dry add more buttermilk
6) Pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with grease-proof paper and put in the oven for 40 mins
7) Take the loaf out after 40 mins, remove it from the tin and place it back into the oven for a further 10 minutes
8) Leave the loaf to cool on a wire rack before slicing.

Love these!!! :)
