Irish Soda Bread

This one is a nice addition to the previous post (Guinness and Beef Stew). It is definitely best served warm. Use it to sop up the left-over stew or slather with butter and honey.
Irish Soda Bread
an adaptation of a Cooking Light recipe

2 1/4 c. whole-wheat flour
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. oats
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. wheat germ
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. 2% milk
1 tsp. vinegar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 325. Add vinegar to milk and set aside. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, wheat germ, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl (and whisk together). Add the egg to the milk mixture and beat lightly. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Stir just until combined. Dump into the loaf pan and bake for 1 hr. and 5 min. Remove from oven, and remove bread from loaf pan using parchment paper to lift out. Makes 12 slices.
And as if that wasn't enough, here she is bathing in calories:
