Dave's Garden Cookbook: B.C.'s BEST SODA BREAD

The 2001 Dave's Garden Cookbook


By gardendragon

Category: Breads, rolls, and pastries

5 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups buttermilk (approx.)
cup honey

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, stir together whole wheat & all-purpose flours, baking soda & salt. Pour 3 cups of the buttermilk & the honey over the flour mixture &, using your h&s, mix well until a soft moist dough forms. Add more buttermilk if necessary. Coating your h&s well with flour, scoop the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface & divide in half. Gently knead each half into a ball, using as little added flour as possible. Use a light touch - the less kneading the better. Place the balls of dough side by side in a buttered & well floured 13 x 9" cake pan. Bake for 1 hour or until well risen & golden brown, & the loaves sound hollow when tapped underneath. Break the two loaves apart & serve warm, spread with butter.
