Nutrition: Per serving (10)


  • 250g einkorn flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 370ml natural yogurt
  • 1 large egg


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Sprinkle a little of the einkorn flour over a baking sheet, then tip both flours, the bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar into a bowl and stir to combine. Whisk the yogurt and egg together in a jug.

  • STEP 2

    Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Swiftly mix the ingredients together to create a slightly sticky dough. Form into a round, about 4-5cm thick and put in the middle of the baking sheet. Dip the handle of a wooden spoon into some flour, then lightly press into the top to create a cross. Lightly dust with a little more einkorn flour.

  • STEP 3

    Bake in the oven for 40-45 mins or until slightly risen with no grey, uncooked patches in the cross. Set aside to cool, then serve with salted butter, if you like.
