2 C flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
3 TBS. butter
1 beaten egg
3/4 C buttermilk
1 (additional) egg
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and soda, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine 1 egg and buttermilk; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough gently for 12 strokes. In a greased baking dish, shape dough into a 6" round loaf. With a sharp knife, cut a 4" slit across the top, 1/4" deep. Brush with another beaten egg. Bake at 375-degrees for thirty-five to forty minutes, or until golden. Cool on a rack.
Shenanchie's Note: I love this recipe because one doesn't have to use yeast in the preparation. It's very easy to make, and divinely tasty to boot.
