March 21, 2020

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine. 

Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. 

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. 

Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. 

In a small bowl, combine melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture. 

Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 30 to 50 minutes. 

You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter mixture while it bakes.
