Easy and delicious. Didn't think you could make bread? Thought you needed a bread maker or had to deal with yeast and complicated rising schedules? Not for this bread. Try it. You'll love it!
3cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2cupsbutter milk (+ save a little extra to the side)
Preheat your oven to 450 deg.
Put the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and mix well with a whisk.
Make a well in the middle of the flour.
Pour your buttermilk into the well.
Combine with a spoon until it gets too thick.
Switch to mixing with your hands and continue until you have a nice firm dough. If your dough is very dry and doesn't form a nice ball, add a little extra buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time. Knead well before adding your next Tbsp. to be sure you don't overdo it.
Form your dough into a round disk approximately 1 1/2 inches thick.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake it in the oven at 450 deg. for 15 minutes
Reduce the temperature to 400 deg. and continue baking for 25-30 minutes. If your bread starts to look too brown, loosely cover with aluminum foil.
Once it's cooled, store it in a plastic bag in the fridge.
