Cook: 60 minute


  • 500 g cake flour
  • 20 ml baking powder
  • 5 ml salt
  • 80 ml sugar
  • 200 g butter, room temperature and diced
  • 300 ml buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Grease a 33cm x 11cm loaf tin.
Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the buttermilk and mix well. Transfer to the tin and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Remove from the tin and leave to cool. Cut into slices and then thirds. Place on a wire rack.

Turn the oven to the lowest setting and place the wire rack inside. Leave the oven door slightly ajar and dry overnight.
