A popular Irish rhyme sums up how the Irish feel about their breads, especially soda bread made with oatmeal: Rye bread will do you good, barley bread will do you no harm, wheaten bread will sweeten your blood, oaten bread will strengthen your arm.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup quick cooking irish oatmeal
1/3 cup steel-cut irish oatmeal
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
2 1/4 cups buttermilk

1 tablespoon quick cooking irish oatmeal

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Lightly dust baking sheet with flour. Whisk first 7 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Using pastry cutter or fingertips, work in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Form well in center. Using wooden spoon, gradually stir in buttermilk. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead to form dough, about 1 minute.


Shape dough into ball. Place dough in center of prepared baking sheet. Flatten dough into 1 1/2-inches thick disk. Dip large sharp knife in flour, and cut cross halfway through center of dough so that it will easily break into quarters when baked. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon quick cooking oatmeal over top.


Bake until bread is nicely browned and skewer inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes (check after 20 minutes, and if browning too quickly, reduce heat to 350 degrees F).

Tasty, but dough was sticky, baking time longer.
I had to add 1/2 cup of flour to knead it into my sticky dough, to make it workable. Then it behaved, and I was able to shape it nicely. It rose quite a bit while baking, making a rather large 3" high loaf. My skewer came out clean in two places, so I pulled my bread out. There was a large uncooked spot though, that I just cut out. The metal skewer didn't work, even when inserted right in that sticky spot. Tasty though. I might halve the recipe if I try it again.
