Makes a small round loaf

2 1/4 c flour
2 tsp sugar
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 T butter or oil
½ c sour milk or buttermilk
1/3 c beer or soda water

Preheat oven to 375

Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in butter or oil as you would for biscuits or pie. Add liquids and mix until just combined. Gather dough together with your hands and form into a round that is 2-3” thick. Place on greased baking sheet and cook for 35 – 45 minutes, until crust is dark and bread is cooked all the way through. Check the center with a skewer or knife to make sure. Brush with soft butter and sprinkle top with salt.
Cool on wire rack.
