Very Easy


- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cake flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds


Step 1

Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Whisk the flours, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together in a large bowl. Work the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 3

Combine the buttermilk and egg with a fork. Add the buttermilk-egg mixture, raisins and caraway seeds to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork just until the dough begins to come together.

Step 4

Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead just until the dough becomes cohesive and bumpy, about 30 seconds.

Step 5

Pat the dough into a 6-inch round about 2 inches thick, and lay on the prepared baking sheet. Using a serrated knife, cut a large 3/4-inch deep cross into the top of the loaf.

Step 6

Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes.

Step 7

The internal temperature of the bread should be 170 F.
