Brown Soda Bread
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups fat-free buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Combine
the flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add the
buttermilk and stir with a wooden spoon until just moistened. Gather the mixture
into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 2 to 3 times. Divide
the dough in half and press into 2 round loafs. Transfer to the baking sheet.
With a sharp knife, cut an X over the surface of each loaf. Bake until golden
brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
Transfer the loaves to a rack to cool completely. Cut each loaf into 12 slices.
Note: To store, wrap the cooled loaf in a clean tea towel and keep at room
temperature. Soda breads may be kept this way for up to two days.
