Ingredients

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for work surface

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 4

    tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

  • 2

    tablespoons caraway seeds (optional)

  • 1

    cup regular or golden raisins (or, currants)

  • 1

    cup buttermilk

  • 1

    egg

Directions

Heat oven to 350º. In the bowl of a standing mixer with paddle attachment, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add butter, caraway seeds (if you like), and raisins. Combine just until incorporated. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg. Add to dough; mix just until incorporated. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and fold it over onto itself two or three times, shaping it into a round 8-inch loaf. You can also use a tube pan to help shape the loaf. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or Silpat. If desired, score an “x” on the top of the dough. Bake 45 minutes, until well-browned and a toothpick inserted into the center emerges clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing. Serve with butter and your favorite jam or preserves.
