Butter

Yup I did it in 6 not 8 but oh well!

Add Buttermilk and egg, Everything should come together, should not be dry or have any extra. If its slightly dry add a tablespoon of liquid and combine.

Dough

Shape into a ball and add to a greased pan. I used a bread pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes

Serve with the Lentil Soup from Previous Post: https://peskyapronstrings.wordpress.com/2013/10/13/lentil-vegetable-soup/

I didn’t add salt to my bread, because I was pairing it with the soup which had salt. I don’t tend to use a lot of salt, it far more healthier to omit those things.

Hope you enjoy the meal.
