Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • ¾ c. whole wheat flour
  • ¾ c. white flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup - 1½ cups buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flours, sugar, soda and salt, and stir until mixed well.
  3. Add in the buttermilk (you want the dough to be fairly wet -- almost a batter, and it should be shaggy in appearance -- I used 1¼ c. buttermilk in the pictured bread) and stir until all the ingredients are combined.
  4. Place the dough on a floured or lined cookie sheet, shape into a rough round loaf,and slash the top in an "X" with a sharp knife.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, serve warm.
