Quick and Easy Bread: No Kneading
2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 cups Bread Flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 8 pieces
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
Combine, Flours Sugar and Baking Soda. Cut in Butter, making sure there are no large chunks incorporated into the flour mixture.
Yup I did it in 6 not 8 but oh well!
Add Buttermilk and egg, Everything should come together, should not be dry or have any extra. If its slightly dry add a tablespoon of liquid and combine.
Shape into a ball and add to a greased pan. I used a bread pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes
Serve with the Lentil Soup from Previous Post: https://peskyapronstrings.wordpress.com/2013/10/13/lentil-vegetable-soup/
I didn’t add salt to my bread, because I was pairing it with the soup which had salt. I don’t tend to use a lot of salt, it far more healthier to omit those things.
Hope you enjoy the meal.
