I was eating some fajitas and rice one day and wondered "how about I combine this somehow?" This is the result. Green salad and corn bread are very good complementary dishes.
If you like fluffy brown bread this it. No white flour here. You can use any 100% whole grain wheat flour. I mill my own. This bread is not heavy like most 100% whole wheat breads. If it is you used too much flour and your dough was too stiff. If it flattens out and won't stand up you need more flour. The total amount of flour is usually about 7 cups. This recipe has been in my family for years and we all make it. We make a lot more now that we have powerful mixers and the hand kneading is bye bye.
Easy homemade basic cake from scratch that you can add anythings to and make any flavor you like. This is a family recipe that we have passed down 4 or more generations. You can add thing like 1/4 cup cocoa or a of box JELL-O(R) powder to make other flavors.

This recipe is over 300 years old! I found it in an old cookbook and cherish it dearly. Bear in mind this is a very dense, very rustic loaf, and creates a very hard crust. But it is fun for an authentic Irish treat. Because of the recipes age, all of the rising comes from the buttermilk, rather than bread soda (baking soda). If you prefer a lighter loaf, you may add 1 t. of bread soda to the dry ingredients.
