Irish Brown Soda Bread

Serves 8

2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (or combine 1 cup and 3 Tbsp skim milk with 1 Tbsp white vinegar and allow to sit in refrigerator for one hour)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Form a well in the middle of dry ingredients and add buttermilk (or substitute). Stir mixture, slowly incorporating more flour mixture until a dough is formed. Knead in bowl briefly until a ball is formed (15 seconds should do it). Divide dough in half and roll into 2 round balls. Place balls on a lightly greased baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, scour and X into the top of each loaf. Bake for ~20-25 minutes, until loaves are golden brown. Slice into slices or quarters prior to serving.
