Whole Wheat Irish Bread Recipe


4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup white flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup oatmeal

2 1/2 cups buttermilk


Preheat oven to 425° F.

Sift all dry ingredients together. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk and stir until soft dough forms. Turn on a floured surface and knead lightly to form a circle about 15 in. in diameter. Cut a deep cross into the dough with a sharp knife.

Place on a buttered baking dish and bake on middle oven rack for 15 minutes. Then reduce oven temperature to 350° F and bake for another 25 minutes until rich and crusty.

Cool on a wire rack before serving.
