1. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda. Stir in caraway seeds. Cut in butter.

Shape into smooth ball. Place in a well greased 2 quart baking pan ( I use an 8inch cast iron pan). Cut a 4 inch cross about 1/4 inch deep across the top.
4. Lightly beat egg yolk and water, brush over loaf. Bake 60 to 70 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to knock on the bread, it should sound hollow.
