  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/1½ cups buttermilk


  • Heat oven to 425°F. Brush a baking sheet with melted butter or spray with non-stick spray.

  • Combine dry ingredients in a deep bowl. Gradually stir 1 cup buttermilk, beating constantly, until dough is firm enough to be gathered into a ball. If dough crumbles, add up to ½ cup more buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it holds together.

  • Place on a lightly floured board and pat into an 8-inch flattened round loaf. Place loaf on baking sheet and slash a ½-inch deep “X” into the top of the dough with a small, sharp knife.

  • Bake at 425°F for about 45 minutes, or until the top is golden.

  • Serve hot.
