Wholewheat Quickbread

250g wholewheat flour
250g cake flour
5ml bicarbonate of soda
5ml salt
420ml cultured buttermilk
edible food colourant paste if you want to decorate the bread

Preheat your oven to 200℃ and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Add the two flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt to a mixing bowl.
Pour in the buttermilk and stir the ingredients until it comes together as a dough.
Flour a work surface and tip the dough on it.
Gently roll and fold the dough to form a ball shape – do not knead!!
Place the shaped bread on the prepared baking sheet and dust off the excess flour with a pastry brush.
If you would like to paint on the bread, now is the time. I used a paste colourant that I normally use to colour cake icing. Simply paint directly on the bread and voila!!
Now make two cross cuts in the bread – be careful not to cut straight through.
Cover with a tea towel and allow to rest for 15 minutes – If you are not painting and fiddling, allow the bread 30 minutes.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Cool the quick bread completely before slicing.
