In a large bowl stir together whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, soda, and 2 tablespoons of the sugar until thoroughly blended.
Cut butter into chunks, add to bowl, and rub mixture together with your fingers until butter particles are no longer distinguishable.
Measure 1 tablespoon of the beaten eggs and set aside.
Stir milk into remaining egg until blended.
With a fork, combine milk and egg mixture with flour mixture until evenly moistened.
With your hands pat dough (it is sticky) into a ball and place on a floured board.
Knead dough lightly 2 or 3 turns, then place on a lightly greased baking sheet and pat into a smooth circle about 8 inches in diameter.
