Irish Brown Bread
1 oz. Kerrygold butter
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease an 8-by-5-inch metal loaf pan with the butter.
In a large bowl, sift the wheat and all-purpose flour with the baking soda and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the egg; stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until a rough dough is formed.
Dust a smooth surface with flour and transfer the dough; knead the dough until smooth.
Mold the dough into a loaf and put it in the prepared pan. Bake for about 50 minutes, until the bread has risen about 1/2 inch above the rim of the pan.
Remove form oven and place on a wire cooling rack. Tap the base of the loaf and listen for hollow sound. Let cool, then slice and serve with Kerrygold 100% pure grass-fed butter. Enjoy!
