IRISH SODA BREAD 13/4 cups unbleached flour, plys extra to dust with 13/4 cups whole-wheat flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 2 Tbs. unsalted butter 11/4 cups buttermilk
Sift the flours,baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until evenly dispersed. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour to form a soft, crumbly dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead very lightly until smooth,up to 3 minutes. Shape into a flattened round,about 6 in. across and 2 in. thick. Dust with flour, Cut a slash 1 in. deep, across the top, then another in the opposite direction to make an X. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes, until hollow sounding when tapped underneath. Cover with a dish towel, then cool on a wire rack.
Oven temp.- 400% for 35 minutes yields 1 loaf
