4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
4 Tbsp White Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Margarine (softened)
1 Cup Buttermilk
1/4 Cup butter (melted)
1/4 Cup Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet (or place parchment paper down instead).
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and butter. Stir in the 1 Cup of buttermilk and the egg. Turn down onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round loaf and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Use a sharp knife and cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf.
In a small bowl combine the remaining buttermilk and butter. Brush loaf with the mixture.
Bake the loaf in the oven for 45-50 minutes (be sure to check around the 30 minute mark to see how close to being done it is, adjust time as needed). Allow to cool for a few minutes, serve & enjoy!
