1 oz = 1 serving. One loaf is roughly 20 oz. I typically use wholemeal flour, which you can find at Irish/British import stores. Odlum's is my brand of choice. However whole wheat works fine too. One tablespoon of flax meal is optional.

Recipe Ingredients for Irish Soda Bread

14 oz buttermilk
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup bread flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 oz margarine
1 tbsp flax meal

Recipe Directions for Irish Soda Bread

Sift flours, salt and baking soda together in a bowl. Rub in margarine until fully blended. Make well in the flour, pour in a little bit of the butter milk and mix into flour mixture with hands. Add little bit of milk at a time until mixture holds and is sticky. Scrape dough out of bowl and knead 3-4 times on a floured surface. Form into a round loaf and put onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Use very sharp knife and cut cross on top of loaf about halfway down. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
