Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup baking raisins
1 3/4 cups well-shaken low fat buttermilk
Butter Spray


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray and flour (can use Baker's Joy) a large baking sheet or bake on Silpat.

Sift together 4 cups of flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and stir in sugar and raisins.

Add buttermilk and stir just until dough is evenly moistened but still lumpy and sticky.

Transfer dough to a well-floured surface and gently knead with floured hands about 8 times to form a soft but slightly sticky dough.

Halve dough and form into 2 balls.

Pat out each ball into a domed 6 inch round on baking sheet.

Cut a 1/2 inch deep X on top of each loaf with a knife, then spray with butter spray.

Bake in middle of oven until golden brown and bottoms sound hollow when tapped, 35-40 minutes.

Transfer loaves to racks to cool completely.
