Preheat oven to 160 degrees C / gas mark 3. Grease a 23x12cm (9x5 inch) loaf tin.
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared bread tin.
Bake for about an hour, or until a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Wrap in a clean drying cloth for several hours, or overnight, for best flavour.
