    I posted this here a long time ago - the Scottish equivalent of an Irish soda bread

    This is the Scottish version of Irish soda bread, it orginates from Lorne in Argyllshire. It's great eaten warm, spread with butter.
    8 oz plain flour (sifted)
    2 oz malted wholemeal flour
    4 oz wholemeal flour
    2 oz rolled oats (reserve a few for the topping()
    1 teaspoon of salt
    2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
    1.5 oz butter, cubed
    4 oz cooked, mashed potatoes
    1 tablespoon of Scottish heather honey (or any other runny honey at a pinch!)
    Half a pint of buttermilk.
    For the glaze: 1 tablespoon of heather honey mixed with one tablespoon of water.
    Preheat oven to 400F/200C/gas mark 6
    Put the flours, oats, salt and bicarb into a large bowl and mix well. Pour into a processor. Pulse in the butter, followed by the potatoes and honey.
    Transfer mix back to the large bowl and add sufficient buttermilk to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth. Shape the dough into a long oval shape, making sure it is not less than 1 inch thick. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
    Using a floured wooden spoon, make indents along the top of the loaf. Brush glaze lightly over loaf and sprinkle with the reserved oats. Bake in preheated oven for about 40-45 mins, until brown and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
