This is a newly acquired recipe that I've already made countless times. Nutmeg adds a palate-pleasing taste.—Dorothy Knapp, Mt. Morris, New York


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, nutmeg, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Pour into a 9x5-in. loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray.
  2. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
