Rosemary Irish Soda Bread
4 cups flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk with 2 tsp. white vinegar added)
1 egg
Fresh rosemary, chopped
1.  Grease a baking sheet, and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2.  Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and butter.  I did this in my Kitchen Aid.  Stir in the buttermilk and egg.  (If you don’t have buttermilk, like I didn’t, just add a couple teaspoons of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk, and let it sit for a few minutes.)
3.  Pat the dough into a round shape, flatten the top slightly, and place on the greased baking sheet.  Brush on a slightly stirred egg white, and cut an X in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife.  Bake the bread for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
