A Great St. Paddy's Day Recipe

Irish Oat Bread
2 ½ C Oatmeal
2 C Buttermilk or sour milk
3 C Flour
1 Tbs Brown sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking soda

Soak oatmeal overnight (or a minimum of 3 hours) in milk.

Sift together other ingredients and combine with oats. It will look too dry, but don't worry. Knead for a few minutes until a smooth dough forms.

Press dough into 1½ inch thick circle.

Cut deep cross in top for heat penetration.

Place in greased pie pan.

Bake 34 to 40 minutes at 450.

Serve warm.
