amount measure ingredient -- preparation method 
-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 
6 cup  all purpose flour
2 tsp  baking soda
2 tsp  baking powder
3 Tbsp  cornstarch
2 tsp  sugar
1 tsp  salt
2-1/2 cup  buttermilk ***
  add for "spotted dog-----
1/2 cup  raisins or sultanas
 
*** may substitute 2 1/2 cup water and 10 tablespoons buttermilk powder. 
 
preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
 
add all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix very well. (if 
making spotted dog variant, then add raisins.) pour all of the buttermilk 
into the bowl at once and stir, using a wooden spoon, just until a soft 
dough is formed. do not try to make it smooth at this point. pour the 
contents of the bowl out onto a plastic counter and knead for a minute or 
so until everything comes together. you may need to add a bit more flour 
depending on humidity. the dough should be smooth, not sticky. 
 
divide the dough into two portions and shape each into a round loaf, 
pressing the top down a bit to just barely flatten it. place the loaves 
on a large ungreased baking sheet. sprinkle some additional flour on the 
top of each loaf and, using a sharp paring knife, make the sign of the 
cross in slashes on the top of each. 
 
allow the loaves to rest for 10 minutes and then bake on the middle rack 
of the oven for 40 minutes, or until the loaves are golden brown and done 
to taste. 
cool on racks.
