|Number of Servings:||20|
4 Cup(s) all-purpose flour
4 Tablespoon(s) sugar
1 Teaspoon(s) baking soda
1 Tablespoon(s) baking powder
1/2 Cup(s) softened Brummel & Brown spread
1 1/4 buttermilk
1 Cup(s) egg
1/4 Cup(s) melted butter
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.
