"No Yeast" Whole Grain Soda Bread

*** Based on a recipe I found here.***

I love this recipe because it's simple to make, it's healthy and it tastes delicious. It's almost a cross between a bread and a bran muffin. It's rustic, hearty, doesn't require yeast or kneading, and you can make it in ONE bowl. My boys are obsessed with this whole grain soda bread recipe... and I can't believe how easy it is!

4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup uncooked grain porridge cereal (e.g. Red River Cereal)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp baking soda
4 cups buttermilk (or, for each cup of buttermilk: put one tablespoon white vinegar in a measuring cup, fill with milk to the 1 cup line, stir, and let sit for 10 minutes)


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 1 large bread pan and one muffin tin (or 2 large bread pans or 2 muffin tins).
2) In a very large bowl, whisk together: white flour, whole wheat flour, grain cereal, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda.
3) Form a well in the centre of the flour mixture, and pour in buttermilk.
4) Just mix until the dry ingredients are incorporated. (The batter is not like a traditional bread dough... it is pretty wet. It is more like a muffin batter.)
5) Fill a muffin tin with batter and a bread pan with the remaining batter (which will make 12 rolls and 1 loaf of bread... or 24 rolls... or 2 loaves of bread).
6) Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes and the loaf of bread for 55-60 minutes.

This is a great rustic bread you can throw together quickly in ONE bowl. There is no kneading, and no waiting for the dough to rise. I love it! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
