Method

+/- 45 min
 
Grease a small cast-iron pot with butter or margarine. Combine the oat bran, flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda, instant yeast and grated potato in a large mixing bowl. Beat the buttermilk, sugar and egg together and add to the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly to form a thick batter. Turn into the prepared pot and sprinkle with the seeds. Cover the pot with the lid and leave in a warm place to rise until double in volume. Place the pot on bricks over hot ashes and place a few hot coals on top of the lid. Regularly place hot coals on top of the lid to ensure the temperature remains constant. Bake the bread for about 1 hour until it sounds hollow when tapped underneath. Alternatively, bake the pot bread in the oven. Preheat oven to 190 ºC and bake the bread uncovered for about 45 minutes until done. Makes 1 medium-sized bread.
