Ingredients:
2 c. whole wheat flour 2 1/2 c. flour 1 1/2 c. oats 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1 Tbsp. sugar 2 1/2 c. buttermilk
Directions:
A hearty peasant bread - that's fun to make with the kids. And no yeast necessary: this bread gets all its rising from the baking soda and buttermilk. Note: On buttermilk: If you don't have buttermilk in your fridge (and who does?), get a measuring cup large enough to hold all 2 1/2 c. In the bottom of the cup, place 5 Tbsp. white vinegar. Fill it up to 2 1/2 c. with milk, the kind you'd use on your cereal. Let it stand about 5 min. while you get the rest of your ingredients together; this gives the vinegar time to do its work and clabber the milk. Combine whole wheat flour, flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Mix it up with your hands. Make a well in the center and add about half the buttermilk. Work the flour into the liquid. Gradually add the rest of the buttermilk. Work it all together into a very sticky dough. Lightly flour a large baking sheet. Flour your hands, then shape into a big ball. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, score an X in the top of the ball. Bake at 400F until golden brown, about 50 min. Transfer the loaf to a wire rack and let cool at least 10 min.
