Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 cups white flour (more if needed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 egg

READY IN
1 hr
  • Preheat oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together baking soda, salt, and baking powder.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together milk, butter, honey and egg. Stir liquid ingredients into flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Dough should hold a formed shape--if not, gradually add a little flour until you can shape the dough into a mound 6" around.
  • Place dough on baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. Spray parchment paper with cooking oil. Take a sharp knife and make an X on the top of dough.
  • Bake 45 minutes, or until the bottom sounds hollow when thumped.
  • Cool slightly before serving.


Note: The bread is best when eaten the day it is made. Serve it with butter and honey.
