and another one - don't know why I only make this once a year - just love it!!
4 c a.p. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 c superfine sugar
2 c. buttermilk
Oven to 425°. Lightly grease a 9" round cake pan or a 9 X 5" loaf pan.
Sift flour, b. soda, cream of tartar, & salt together into a large bowl.
Stir in the sugar.
Make a well in center, add the buttermilk, & w/a fork, work the milk into the flour till a soft dough is formed.
Turn into the prepared pan & bake for 10 min.
Reduce temp to 400° and bake till bread is golden brown & firm to the touch, ~45 min. Let cool slightly before slicing.
Makes 1 loaf.
This bread also makes a great crust for meat & game pies when rolled out to ~1/4" thickness.
