Irish Soda Bread

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day - here is my family's recipe.Irish Soda Bread
This isn't my photo, but mine looks pretty similar, only I add icing to mine - that's our favorite part!
4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 egg
1 3/4 cup buttermilk

Mix the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Then add the egg and buttermilk. Don't over mix. Form into 2 round loaves. (Dough is sticky, much like making buttermilk biscuits.) Cut an X in the tops.

Bake at 375 for 30-35 min

Drizzle with powder sugar icing
