Enjoy this lovely bread on its own, or topped with butter and honey alongside a pepper-mint tea. This recipe has been passed down by my mum – we’ve spent many rainy afternoons by the fire eating this snuggled on the sofa – so put your feet up and savour each delicious mouthful!

As the recipe details, the ground nuts are optional, but we’d strongly suggest adding them for improved flavour and texture. Use nuts which bake well such as pine nuts, almonds, pistachios or walnuts. Our favourite nuts to use in this recipe are pistachios.
