Northern Style Irish Wheaten Bread

Thanks to Patricia for sharing this recipe which I have adapted a bit. Patricia sometimes sprinkles roasted pumpkin seeds on top as well - another delicious adaptation.

Ingredients
(measures are by weight)
6 oz. whole wheat (or whole meal) flour
2 oz. plain flour
1 oz. + 1 tablespoon steel cut oats (or pinhead oats)
2 oz. Wheatena cereal (or 1 oz. each of wheat germ and wheat bran)
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1 pint buttermilk
 
Small loaf pan

Method
Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Sift the flours and mix in the remaining dry ingredients (if you can't find Wheatena, you can also use
1 oz. each of wheat germ and wheat bran).  Add the beaten egg and buttermilk and mix until combined.  Pour the batter into a greased tin and sprinkle with steel cut oats. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes.
