Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. degrees. Lightly crease and flour a cake pan. In a large bowl sieve and combine all the dry ingredients. Rub in the butter until the flour is crumbly.
  • Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough. Place on floured surface and lightly knead (too much allows the gas to escape)
  • Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan and cut a cross in the top of the dough.
  • Cover the pan with another pan and bake for 30 minutes (this simulates the bastible pot). Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  • The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped to show it is done.
  • Cover the bread in a tea towel and lightly sprinkle water on the cloth to keep the bread moist.
