Irish Whole Wheat Soda Bread #5

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, yogurt or milk with lemon juice

Combine the dry ingredients and mix thouroughly to distribute the soda and baking powder, then add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough but firm enough to hold its shape. Knead on a lightly floured board for 2 or 3 minutes, until quite smooth and velvety. Form into a round loaf and place in a well buttered 8 inch cake pan or on a well buttered cookie sheet. Cut a cross on the top of the loaf with a very sharp floured knife. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the loaf is nicely browned and sounds hollow when rapped with the knuckles. (The cross will have spread open which is characteristic of soda bread.)

  • Yields: 1 round loaf
  • Preparation Time: Less than an hour
