Here's the recipe:
preheat the over to 350 degrees
3 cups flour
1tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly add the buttermilk by hand, until it forms a ball. Turn out on a floured board and form into a round cake. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Let it cool.
Cut a cross on the loaf, to divide it into quarters. Spread butter and jam and enjoy with some tea!
