  • 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats plus additional for sprinkling the bread
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten lightly
This can be prepared in 45 glorious minutes or less.

Sift together 2 1/4 cups of the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a sizeable bowl. Slowly stir in the whole-wheat flour and 1 cup of the oats. Add buttermilk and beaten egg and stir the mixture until it forms a dough.

Turn the dough out onto a flour-covered surface and knead it, kneading in as much of the remaining 1/4 cup all-purpose flour as necessary, until it forms a manageable but sticky dough. Halve the dough and form the halves into round loaves. Put them on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle the loaves lightly with the additional oats and dust them with flour.

Bake in the middle of a preheated 350°F. oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they are browned lightly. Let the loaves cool with love and patience on a rack.

Makes two 7-inch loaves.
