4 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C)
Grease a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and the salt. With pastry blender or your hands, cut in butter.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the milk and water.
Stir until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a round loaf 8 inches across.
Place the loaf onto the prepared pan and using a sharp knife, cut a cross in the top.
Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue to bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. The loaf should be golden brown and the bottom should sound hollow when tapped.
