Breaking freshly baked bread together just got simpler . . .
2 cups flour
½ TBSP baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1/8 cup sugar
2 ½ TBSPS butter
¾ cup raisins
1/2-3/4 caraway seeds
¾ cup buttermilk or soured milk
1 egg (beaten)
Blend flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar together. Cut in butter until less than size of peas. Add raisins and caraway seeds and mix. Mix in milk and egg.
Turn out onto floured surface, and knead for one minute.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 min. It is customary to cut a cross in the unbaked bread.
