The saltiness of the blue cheese along with the sweetness of the honey and the crunch of the walnuts and whole spelt flour is a combination that simply works. Serve alongside soups or stews, or top with some sliced pear, crumbled Gorgonzola and toasted walnuts as a tasty snack.

  • 500 g Whole spelt flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 12 g Baking soda
  • 150 g Blue cheese, I used Gorgonzola
  • 50 g Honey
  • 400 ml Buttermilk
  • 100 g Walnuts
  1. Combine the whole spelt flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Crumble in the blue cheese and mix through the flour. Don’t over mix as you want to keep the veined look of the blue cheese in the mix.
  2. Form a well in the centre and add the honey and buttermilk. Fold in the flour with the walnuts, making sure not to over mix or the bread will be tough.
  3. Line a baking try with parchment paper. Dust the paper with some flour. Scrape the sticky dough onto the paper and dust with more flour. Use your hands to form the dough into a ball. Slice a cross on the top if desired.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Bake the soda bread for 30-35 minutes. The bread is cooked when the tip of a knife comes out clean when inserted into the centre. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool. Best enjoyed the same day.

This sounds really nice. I am going to make a bread with some vegan cheese, as it's not something I tried before, but I would love to.

My sister was raving about soda bread the other day and when she sent her recipe, it looked rather boring. This one however, is not the least bit boring. The blue cheese along makes my mouth water.

OMG! All my favourite flavours in one place and as I love bread too, it's a win, win situation. I have added the recipe to my journal, thank you so much for sharing.

I also like the Joan Gussow quote, you can't beat the taste of real butter slathered on freshly baked bread!
