Ingredients:  
3 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. whole wheat graham flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Whisk together the flours, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl. With a pastry blender or your fingers, blend in butter until it resembles small peas. Add buttermilk all at once; stir with a fork until mixture holds together. In the bowl, pat the dough into a dome shaped loaf, lift out and transfer to lined sheet. Lightly dust top of loaf with flour. Cut a 3/4 inch deep cross in top, reaching almost all the way to edges. Bake, rotating sheet halfway through, until deep golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

Personal Notes:
This is super good. It's so simple, not a lot of junk in it. Get some Irish butter to slather on it while it's hot and you'll get a little taste of Heaven.
