 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4 1/4                To 4-1/2 cups whole wheat
                         -graham flour
    4       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Salt
    2       ts           Butter or margarine, cut in
                         -small pieces
    2       c            Buttermilk
 
   Heat oven to 350F.   Grease a large cast-iron skillet
   or  baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix 4 C.  flour
   with the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add
   butter and rub it into the flour by scooping up
   handfuls of the mixture and rubbing it between  the
   palms of your hands until pieces of butter  are  no
   longer visible.
   
   Add  buttermilk  to a bowl and stir with a  wooden
   spoon  until mixture forms  a dough.   Sprinkle about
   1/4  cup of  remaining flour on a board. Turn out
   dough and knead lightly for about 1 minute, working in
   the flour from the board and forming  dough into a
   smooth, round loaf about 8 inches in diameter.
   
   Put loaf,  smooth side up,  in prepared pan and cut a
   deep cross in it, slicing three-fourths of the way
   through the dough.  Bake 55-60 minutes, or until loaf
   sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Cool on a
   wire rack.
