2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1½ teaspoons baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Combine the flours, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Make a well in the center of mixture. Add buttermilk to flour mixture; mix with your hands until blended (dough will be sticky). Turn dough out onto a generously floured surface. Knead lightly 4 to 5 times. Shape dough into an 8-inch round loaf; place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400 and continue to bake for another 15 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack.
