 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       c            Flour, whole wheat
    1       c            Flour, all purpose
    1       tb           Salt
    1       t            Baking soda
      3/4   ts           Baking powder
    1 1/2   c            Buttermilk, yogurt, or milk
                         -soured with lemon juice
 
   Combine the dry ingredients and mix thouroughly to
   distribute the soda and baking powder, then add enough
   buttermilk to make a soft dough but firm enough to
   hold its shape. Knead on a lightly floured board for 2
   or 3 minutes, until quite smooth and velvety. Form
   into a round loaf and place in a well buttered 8 inch
   cake pan or on a well buttered cookie sheet. Cut a
   cross on the top of the loaf with a very sharp floured
   knife. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 35-40
   minutes, or until the loaf is nicely browned and
   sounds hollow when rapped with the knuckles. (The
   cross will have spread open which is characteristic of
   soda bread.) From _Beard on Bread_.
