  2. Tip the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda into an outsized bowl and stir.
  3. Make a well within the centre and pour within the buttermilk, mixing quickly with an outsized fork to make a soft dough. (Depending upon the absorbency of the flour, you’ll got to add a touch milk if the dough seems too stiff but it shouldn’t be too wet or sticky.)
