Whole Wheat Bread

This whole wheat bread has definitely been an Irish staple a couple of centuries ago. It’s traditionally made with salt, flour, baking soda and buttermilk. Modern versions include sugar, raisins or other type of seeds. However, regardless of the recipe, it will turn out perfect each time. Here is how you make it at home as well as what you need for it:whole wheat bread

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of whole-wheat flour
  • 3⁄4 tsp. of baking soda
  • 1⁄4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3⁄4 tsp of table salt
  • 3⁄4 cup of dried apricots
  • 1⁄2 cup of pistachios
  • 1 cup of buttermilk

Whole Wheat Bread

First of all, position a rack in the center of the oven and then heat the oven up at 450 degrees F. Line a large cooking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk together the sugar, baking soda and flours into a large bowl. Add in the pistachios and apricots. Pour 2 tablespoons of buttermilk over the dry ingredients. Gather the dough together and knead it until it holds together. Continue until the dough is soft and sticky.

Secondly, dust a work surface with flour, then scrape the dough over it. Flour your hands and then shape the dough into a 6 inch disk. Turn the disk over, with the floury side on top and move it onto the prepared pan. Use a serrated knife and carve the top with an x from one side to the other.

Next, reduce the temperature of the oven to 400 degrees F, then bake your whole wheat bread until it’s well browned, for about 50 minutes. This bread tastes better when it’s served slightly warm or at room temperature. If you want it to have a softer crust, wrap the just-baked bread into a clean dishtowel and let it cool on the rack.
