whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 425° F. Lightly grease and flour a cake pan or dutch oven.
In a large bowl, sift all dry ingredients together.
Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until just combined. Be careful not to knead too much.
Shape into a round flat shape and place into the prepared pan. Using a sharp knife, cut a cross into the top of the dough.
Cover the pan with its lid or another pan and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Remove the bread from the oven and tap the bottom of the loaf. It will have a hollow sound when it’s done. Allow bread to cool and enjoy with butter!
Cover the bread with a slightly damp tea towel to keep it moist.
