How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 375°. Butter an 8-by-5-inch metal loaf pan.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, whisk both flours with the baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the egg; stir into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until a rough dough forms.

Step 3    

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth. Form the dough into a loaf and put it in the prepared pan. Bake for about 50 minutes, until the bread has risen about 1/2 inch above the rim of the pan. Once unmolded, the loaf should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let cool to warm or room temperature, then slice and serve.

Serve With

Irish farmhouse cheeses.

Review Body: What is wrong with this recipe? It obviously doesn't have enough liquid. There is no way to knead it into anything resembling a loaf. Wish I had previewed before making it on St. Patrick's Day. Rats!
