When traveling to the Netherlands, I like to purchase the UK edition of Country Living Magazine at the airport. Here is one of my favorite recipes that I have adapted to our measurements and ingredients for a variation on Three -seed wholemeal soda bread.

Yield 1 loaf
Preheat oven 375 degrees
mix the following ingredients in a bowl with a wooden spoon.
1 Cup Whole-wheat Flour
1 Cup White Flour
2 Tablespoons soft dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
Rub butter between hands while adding to the above mixture.
1/3 Cup butter
Reserve 1 1/2-2 T seed mix. Add remaining seeds to batter.
8 Tablespoons mixed seeds: sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and poppyseeds
Add & Mix in
2 Cups Buttermilk
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread out batter in the middle of the pan, then lightly shape into an irregular circle creating a rustic looking shape.
The batter will be sticky and moist to handle.
Sprinkle remaining seeds on the top & bake.
Bake 35-45 minutes until golden brown.
