1 cup whole wheat bread flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 tbsp sweet butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup buttermilk

  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • Sift together flours, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Add garlic and cheese and combine well.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together butter, egg, and buttermilk. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix, using a large rubber spatula. When dough becomes too stiff, use your hands and continue to mix, forming dough into a ball.
  • Oil an 8 1/2-inch round cake pan.
  • Press dough into the cake pan and use a sharp knife to make eight wedge-shaped cuts about 1/4-inch deep. Bake until light brown, about 35 - 40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack, then serve in wedges.


  • One delicious way to serve this bread is to slice each wedge horizontally, then spread the crumbly side with a bit of sweet butter and sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Broil until golden and serve with grilled steak.
