Irish Brown Bread

Irish Brown Bread

3 c whole wheat flour
1 c oat bran
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 T dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 3/4 c buttermilk

In a large bowl, combine both flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together egg, oil, and buttermilk.

Make well in the center of flour. Using a fork, gradually mix in liquid ingredients. When the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and can be shaped into a loaf, turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly for about 5 minutes.

Divide ball in half. Put each half into lightly greased 8 inch round pan. Cut an X across whole top of dough with a sharp knife.

Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 30 minutes until crust is light golden brown, and loaf sounds hollow when tapped
