Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup regular rolled oats
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons dark molasses
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • plus extra for dusting
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions

  1. Mix rolled oats, buttermilk, and molasses in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Whisk together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar until combined; pour flour mixture into buttermilk mixture and stir just until moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured work surface and knead 3 or 4 times until dough holds its shape.
  4. Cut dough in half; pat each half into a 6-inch round loaf.
  5. Use a sharp knife to deeply score each loaf in quarters, cutting 1-inch deep.
  6. Wrap each loaf in plastic wrap and allow to stand at least 12 hours at room temperature to ferment.
  7. (Loaves can be refrigerated up to 2 more days after this, if desired.)
  8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  9. Place loaves on an ungreased baking sheet.
  10. Bake loaves for 15 minutes and reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  11. Continue to bake until loaves are browned and make a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom, about 20 more minutes.
  12. Allow breads to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
  13. To serve, slice loaves 3/4-inch thick all across the loaf, then cut slices in half.

      Sounds very good. I'll save it to my recipe board for the decade I start cooking again. With the holiday's coming up it will come in handy.
