Irish whole wheat soda bread.


1 2/3 c of unbleached bread flour
1.5 c of whole wheat flour
1 tbl of baking powder
1/4 c of sugar
3/4 stick of butter, room temperature
1 tsp of salt
1 1/4 c of mik (I used non fat)
2 tbl of buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 400 and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place all of the ingredients into your stand mixer, with the paddle attachment, and mix until it forms into a “ball” of soft dough.  Remove it and place on a floured surface.  Shape into a ball and then flatten a bit with the palm of your hand. Score the top (I use a filet knife) in the shape of an X.  Dust the top with flour and place on your baking sheet.  Bake for 32-34 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove and let cool.
