Sweetened Irish Soda Bread
From Monica Thiriot
I halved the recipe for my family

4 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons white sugar (I used heaping tablespoons the 2nd time)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup margarine, softened
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg

¼ cup butter, melted
2-3 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a large baking sheet or use skillet In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut an “X” into the top of the loaf. In a small bowl, combine melted butter with sugar. Brush loaf with this mixture. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
