Garlic Buttermilk Bread

Many people find baking a bread as therapeutic and it may be so but I have always thought that it is time consuming,not that I dont enjoy baking one but I have to prep myself for it.I guess I am a bit lazy!

But certainly not with this bread!!! Many would say that its not a conventional kind of bread with yeast and kneading etc .This is a quick bread and it is so damn easy that by the time you pre-heat the oven prep for the bread is already done!

And the compliments which come thereafter surely makes this bread a winner!

Adapted from The Kitchn

Makes one loaf
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 cup Multi grain Flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup  buttermilk substituted with milk and a squeeze of lemon in it.
1 egg
1/4 cup  vegetable or olive oil
1 tsp of dried garlic flakes
1 tsp of Rosemary 
1 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp Sunflower seeds
1 tsp Flax seeds

Heat the oven to 180C. Grease a standard 9x5 loaf pan.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.  Whisk in a separate bowl oil with the buttermilk and the egg.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients. Gently stir and fold the ingredients until all the flour has been incorporated and a wet batter is formed. Be careful not to over-mix.Sprinkle Sunflower and Flax seeds and remaining 1tsp of Rosemary. 
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and pat it into the corners. Bake for 40-45minutes. When finished, the loaf should be domed and golden, and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and slicing.
