2-1/2 teaspoons baking soda

Recipe Directions

Put 1 cup of the wheat bran in a small bowl. Add the boiling water, stir once and let stand to soften.

Cream the margarine and sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat the eggs slightly and add to the margarine mixture, mixing well.

Combine the flour soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Combine the wheat bran, the softened bran, and the flour mixture, and then combine with the egg/margarine/sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
