3 Cups Flour (sifted)
3 Teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

The recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust ( like traditional bread)
mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it on the top.
Sifting flour for bread recipes are a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off.
That compacts the flour and turns your bread into a ‘hard biscuit’ as some have described. That happens because they did not sift the flour!
If you do not have a sifter use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure.
