Walnut and Fruit Soda Bread

This recipe makes a delicious, rustic soda bread that tastes great with cheese, or just spread with plenty of butter. You can use different dried fruit such as dates, and even different nuts. But this is my favourite combination.

Walnut and Fruit Soda Bread


200g walnuts

500g plain wholemeal flour

10g salt

4tsp baking powder

100g dried figs (chopped)

100g sultanas

150ml apple juice

150ml water


    Preheat the oven to 210C/410F/Gas 7. Lightly grease a large baking tray.

    Crush half the walnuts to a fine powder. Roughly chop the rest.

    Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, walnuts and dried fruit in a large bowl. Add the water and apple juice.

    Mix until the dough is evenly combined, then knead until firm.

    Divide into two large rounds and flatten. Cut a deep cross into each.

    Place on the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the base.

    Leave to cool on a wire rack before serving.
