Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Unbleached white flour
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 12 tb (1 1/2 sticks) cold, sweet
  • -butter
  • 2 c Raisins
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 c Honey
  • 1 c Buttermilk


Makes 1 large loaf.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Sift the flour, baking powder, soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut
the butter into small pieces and add. Cut it into the flour with a pastry
blender until the mixture is the size of peas. Add the raisins and toss to
distribute evenly, using two forks.

Beat the egg in another bowl until very frothy. Beat in the honey. When it
is well blended, beat in the buttermilk.

Gradually pour the liquids into the flour, tossing all the while with a
fork so the mixture gets evenly moistened. Continue tossing lightly with
two forks until the batter comes together; it doesn't have to be completely
mixed and should be very rough and lumpy.

Butter a heavy skillet or casserole, 10 to 11 inches in diameter and 2 to 3
inches deep. Round is the traditional shape. Spoon batter out into the pan
and push it gently to fill the pan. It can mound up somewhat in the middle.
Bake at 350 F about an hour or until the middle is set. Cut out a piece to
test if necessary.

Cut into wedges and serve warm from the pan.
