Philly Journagon


4 cups un-sifted All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
cup sugar (optional)
⅛ tsp cardamom or coriander (optional)
cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1 cups Buttermilk

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, soda, sugar and spices in a large bowl.
Add butter and use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut in until "crumbly."

Beat egg slightly and mix with Buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients and stir.

Turn out on a floured board and knead 2-3 times until smooth.
Divide dough in half and shape each into a round loaf.
Place each loaf in a round 8-inch cake or pie pan. Press down until dough fills the pans.

With a sharp knife, cut crosses on tops of loaves about inch deep.
Bake in 375 oven for 35-40 minutes.
