  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a large baking tray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl, combine melted butter with extra buttermilk. Brush loaf with this mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter mixture while it bakes.
