“"Odlums Flours" are a national brand in Ireland and for generations the recipes found on their packaging have been enjoyed. My Mother always made bread from an Odlums recipe and I have kept it the same....hope you enjoy. It goes great with stews and soups. I also like to serve it with smoked salmon, a combination you are bound to enjoy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sieve the Salt, Bread Soda and All purpose flour into a bowl. Mix in the Wholewheat flour and wheatgerm. Add enough milk to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the mixture comes together. Place on a floured baking sheet forming into a round loaf (approx 10" diameter).
  2. Place into a preheated oven (central position) and bake at 375 to 400 F for 40 to 45 minutes. When baked the bread will sound hollow when you tap it on the bottom. Cool on a baking rack or wrap in a dry tea towel to give a softer crust.
  3. Enjoy.
