This is a goodie!

Aimee who is based in Kaipara, Northland got this recipe from her neighbour Rachel about 15 years ago.

“Rachel gave me this recipe and it was so easy I could whip one up and I add any seeds or spices depending on what I had in the cupboard or garden and that was handy being an hour out of town!” Aimee

Her favourite version is using steinlager beer and harakeke ( flaxseed)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 can or bottle of beer or cider
  • Any seeds or herbs to flavour


Mix all the ingredients together. Bake in a loaf pan or terracotta pot at 180 degrees for 20min. Then eat!
