  • 3-3/4 C of flour
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 3/4 C golden raisins (or try dried currants or dried cranberries)
  • 2 C of buttermilk
  • 1 egg



Pre-heat oven to 375 F.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Place flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl. Blend well.

Fold in raisins until well mixed.

Pour the buttermilk into a separate small bowl.

Add the egg and whisk until completely combined.

Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until mixed together and soft dough has formed.

Flour a flat surface lightly and transfer the dough to the surface.

Knead the dough 10 times or until the dough is pliable and smooth.

Form the dough into a large mounded round.

Place the dough on the prepared cookie sheet. Use a sharp knife to cut a shallow X in the middle of the mound. This allows the bread to expand rather than crack while baking.

Bake for 45 minutes or until browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Serves 10.
