  • 2 cups flour: wholewheat, white or, preferably, a mixture.
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats (oatmeal), optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk or soured milk (milk plus 2 teaspoons vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons oil or melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey or sugar
  • 1 egg

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a pie dish or baking sheet with foil or parchment large enough to accomodate an 8-inch circle. Lightly oil the lining material.
  • In one bowl, mix together the flour, oats (if using), salt, baking soda, and baking powder. In a second bowl, beat together the milk, oil, egg, and honey.
  • Stir the liquid and dry ingredients together to make a sticky dough. If it's too wet to hold a mounded shape, work in a little more flour. Shape into a mound about 6 inches in diameter on the prepared baking surface. With a sharp knife, slice a large X on the top of the loaf.
  • Bake about 45 minutes, or until done. To test for doneness, tap the bottom: It should sound rather hollow. Let the bread cool a few minutes, or longer, before slicing, although the bread is at its best when eaten warm, topped with butter, honey, or both.
