  • Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • Whisk the flour, cake flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Cut 2 tablespoons of butter into small pieces and add to the flour mixture. Use your hands to work the butter into the flour until it is well incorporated.

  • Add the remaining buttermilk one tablespoon at a time until a dough is formed.
  • Place the dough on a floured surface and pat into a 6-inch rounded loaf.
  • Place in an 8-inch stoneware baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Cut an "X", 5-inches long and about 3/4 inch deep, in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 38 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and brush the top with 1 tablespoon of melted butter.
  • Cool slightly and slice. Serve warm.
