Step 1: 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
Step 2: Baking Process
Step 2: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
Step 3: In a big enough bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine.
Step 4: Stir 1 cup of buttermilk and egg into the bowl. (This should result in a dough substance.)
Step 5: Place the dough on a floured and "message" it gently.
Step 6: Shape the dough to make it round and place it on the baking sheet.
Step 7: In a smaller bowl, mix the 1/4 cup buttermilk and 1/4 cup melt butter and brush the mixture onto the dough.
Step 8: Cut an "X" into the top of the dough to allow the middle to cook better.
Step 9: Place the dough into the oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes (or until a toothpick can be inserted and taken out cleanly).
Optional Step: While baking, you may continue with the brushing on of the butter milk and butter mixture every 10 to 15 minutes.
