Mixed seed cream cheese bread with Isle of Wight tomatoes

We can almost guarantee you won’t be satisfied with just one slice of this no yeast soda bread. This moreish loaf with its healthy mix of tomatoes, oats and seeds and with herby cream cheese for added depth of flavour will certainly not disappoint!

Serves: 8

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 60 minutes

You’ll need:

200g Isle of Wight tomatoes

50g oats

50g mixed seeds

100g plain flour

100g wholemeal flour

1 tsp oregano

2 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 eggs

80ml sunflower oil or vegetable oil

80g plain yoghurt

60g grated cheddar cheese

60g cream cheese, we used Paysan Breton French garlic and herb cream cheese

Salt & pepper

What to do:

Heat the oven to 180°C

Chop the tomatoes into bite sized pieces.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, seeds, flours, oregano, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and mix to combine.  In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, oil and yoghurt and grated cheddar.

Put the tomatoes and the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix to combine.  Add the cream cheese in small spoonful’s and swirl through gently, aiming to keep the cream cheese intact.

Pour the mixture into the 2lb loaf tin (sprinkle with a few more seeds and a little grated cheese, if you like).

Bake for 30 minutes and then cover with foil and bake for a further 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack before cutting into thick slices.
