Irish Soda Bread


2 1/2 c  Milk   
   1/2 c  Rolled oats     
    2 T  White vinegar     
    1 t  Baking soda     
    4 c  Whole wheat flour     
    2 t  Salt     
    1 c  All-purpose white flour


Preheat the oven to 375F, or preheat the dutch oven, top and bottom.

Put the milk in a small bowl.  Stir in the vinegar and mix to make the milk sour; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, white flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.  Add the soured mixture to the flour mixture and stir until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Place the dough on a floured board and lightly knead about ten times, until the dough is smooth.

Form the dough into a 9-inch round loaf, place it on a cookie sheet or in a preheated dutch oven, and with a sharp knife, mark the top of the loaf with an X, cutting the dough about 1/8 inch deep.  Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the bread is brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

Cool and serve.
