Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet or place parchment paper on a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup butter. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet.

In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk; brush loaf with the mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an "X" into the top of the loaf.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. After 30 minutes of baking, brush loaf with the butter and milk mixture and again at 40 minutes.
