Ingredients

4 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 to 3 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1 ½ cups buttermilk

2 Tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter

Instructions

Mixing:

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  2. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk and the oil or butter. Stir together until blended—some lumps will remain.

Shaping:

  1. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead about 10 times, or until it all holds together.
  2. Form it into a large ball and place it on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cut a deep cross in the top.

Baking:

  1. Bake the bread in a preheated 400°F oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until it tests done (a cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean.)
