Sun-dried Tomato & Cheddar Spelt Bread

With December and my FIRST Christmas market stall outing fast approaching I have been cooking and baking quite a bit and not blogging as much, so please accept my apologies! I made 50 jars of my ‘Winter Spiced Apple Chutney’ on Saturday, the house was smelling divine from it. I made a batch two weeks ago and  for taste testing purposes obviously we had to sample it with cheese and crackers, well I have to say it is so good. Its tangy yet sweet, warming and tasty…perfect for cheese boards, meat boards and as an accompaniment to pork ~ hell, its great with everything!

Here is the recipe for one of the breads I will have at my stall on Sunday 8th December in Gorey. It is Sun-dried tomato and cheddar spelt savoury but kinda sweet from the sun-dried tomatoes. You can of course add herbs to this bread too or make them in to savoury muffins (which I will be doing very soon!)

Makes one loaf


  • 175g / 1 heaped cup Wholemeal Spelt Flour
  • 155g / 1 heaped cup Oats
  • 60g / 1 heaped cup  Wheat Bran
  • 60g / 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese (I like mature cheddar)
  • 1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
  • 360ml / 1 1/2 cup Buttermilk

Lets go

  1. Pre-heat Oven to 200c / 400f and spray your bread tin with spray oil
  2. Mix the spelt flour, oats, wheat bran and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl so it is all combined
  3. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cheddar
  4. Add Buttermilk and mix to make sure all the ingredients are wet (this is a wet mixture) Add more buttermilk if it’s too dry
  5. Put the mixture in to pre-sprayed and bake in the middle of your oven for 45-50 minutes, I always check at around 45 minutes as all ovens are different. The bread is done when you can knock the bottom and you get a hollow sound
  6. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting
