Nut and Cheese Loaf

Came across this little beauty amongst my untested pile of recipes which took me less than 10 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes in the oven.

I found it perfect for my little girl who usually needs a top up between school and her afternoon classes. 

It's terrific the next day for brekkie, toasted with a little butter coupled with a glass of milk for my girl or a cup of tea for us big people.


2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup grated cheese, and a little more to sprinkle on top
100g mix of sunflower, pumpkin and pine nut seeds
50g walnuts, chopped roughly
1 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 200C degrees.  Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Sift the flour in a bowl then add the cheese, seeds and nuts.  Mix then add the buttermilk.  Stir until you end up with a soft dough and all of the flour has been mixed through.

Turn soft dough into loaf tin and press it into an even shape to fill the tin. 

Sprinkle grated cheese on top.

Bake in oven 30-35 minutes until loaf is golden on top. 

Slice and serve with butter.
