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

  • Brush Mixture

  • 1/4

    cup butter, melted

  • 1/4

    cup buttermilk

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°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 30 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter mixture while it bakes.
