   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   3               cups  all-purpose flour -- organic
   1                cup  whole wheat flour -- organic
   1                cup  oats -- whole
   2 1/2      teaspoons  baking soda
      3/4      teaspoon  sea salt
      1/2           cup  raw sugar
      1/4           cup  butter -- cold, cut into cubes
   1 1/2           cups  buttermilk
   3        tablespoons  orange zest -- from 1 orange
   1                cup  dried cherries
      1/4           cup  oats -- whole
      1/4           cup  sliced almonds
   1         tablespoon  sesame seeds
   2        tablespoons  honey
   1              Pinch  salt

Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment 
paper. Measure the flours, oats, baking soda, salt, and sugar into a 
large bowl. Mix well, then use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into 
the flour mixture until the butter is the size of small peas.

Mix in the orange zest and cherries. Then stir in the buttermilk. 
Once the mixture forms a ball, dump it out onto a floured surface and 
knead several times to form a smooth ball. (If the dough is too dry 
to knead, add 1 -2 tablespoons of extra buttermilk.)

Place the ball on the baking sheet and press down until it's a 2 
1/2-inch thick disk. Mix the granola topping ingredients in a small 
bowl and sprinkle over the top. Then cut a shallow X in the top of 
the soda bread.

Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until golden and crusty. Check the top 
after 15 minutes. If the granola toppings start to turn too dark, 
cover loosely with a piece of foil and continue baking. Allow the 
soda bread to cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
