About the Recipe

Thankfully Peggy Flaherty agrees that this recipe is too good not to share! I wanted a large round loaf so I shaped mine as such and baked it on a sheet pan (free form) but Peggy typically bakes it in a greased & floured large loaf pan or 2 medium size loaf pans. I serve mine with orange honey butter (recipe to follow).

Ingredients

3 cups of all purpose flour

½ tsp of baking soda

3 tsp of baking powder

½ cup of sugar

1 stick of unsalted butter

1 cup of raisins (I used golden raisins and added an extra ½ cup)

1 & ¼ cups of buttermilk (not reduced fat)

1 extra large egg

Preparation

Step 1:  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the dry ingredients together with a whisk.  Set aside. 


Step 2:  Cut the cold butter into cubes.  Cut it into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter (or 2 forks) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in the raisins. 

  

Step 3:  In a separate bowl mix the egg with the buttermilk.  Pour over the flour and raisins and mix together.  Dough will be sticky.  Turn the dough onto a well floured surface and gently knead (about ten strokes) and shape into a round loaf. 


Step 4:  On a parchment lined sheet pan bake the loaf for 50-60 minutes, (until a tester comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
