Irish Brown Bread

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tablespoons toasted wheat bran
  • 3 Tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  • 2 Tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 2 Tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons (1/4 stick) chilled, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups buttermilk
If you can't get to Ireland to savour their wonderful Brown Bread, this is the best recipe I've found using American whole wheat flour.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.

Combine first 8 ingredients in a sizeable bowl; mix well. Add butter; rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles fine meal. Stir in enough buttermilk to form a soft dough. Transfer dough to prepared loaf pan.

Bake until bread is dark brown and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 40 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Turn bread out of pan and cool right side up on rack.
