  • plain flour 350g
  • wholemeal flour 150g
  • salt 1 tsp
  • bicarbonate of soda 2 tsp
  • carrots 150g, peeled and grated
  • walnut or pieces a handful, toasted
  • low-fat Greek yoghurt 300ml
  • semi-skimmed milk 125ml


  • Step 1

    Heat oven to 230c/fan 210/gas 8. Mix the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda, then stir in the carrot, walnuts and yoghurt, followed by enough of the milk to make a soft, quite sticky dough.

    Tip onto a floured surface and form a flat ball, put on a baking sheet, slash the top and bake for 30 minutes until risen and cooked. It’ll sound hollow when you tap it.
