  Categories: Breads, Irish
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       4 c  Stone Ground                    1 1/2 ts Salt
            Whole wheat flour               1 1/2 ts Baking soda
       2 c  White flour                         2 c  Buttermilk or sweet milk
  
   Mix the whole wheat flour throughly with the white flour, salt, and soda.
   
   Make a well in the center and gradually mix in the liquid. Stir with a
   wooden spoon. You may need lass, or more liquid - it depends on the
   absorbent quality of the flour. The dough should be soft but managable.
   
   Knead the dough into a ball in the mixing bowl with your floured hands. Put
   on a lightly floured baking sheet and with the palm of your hand flatten
   out in a circle 1 1/2 inches thick. With a knife dipped in flour, make a
   cross through the center of the bread so that it will easily break into
   quarters when it is baked.
   
   Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake
   a further 15 minutes.
   
   If the crust seems too hard, wrap the baked bread in a damp tea cloth.
   Leave the loaf standing upright until it is cool.
   
   The bread should not be cut until it has set - about 6 hours after it comes
   out of the oven.
