Key Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup raisins

Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease 9-inch-round cake pan.
Step 2
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins and morsels. Combine buttermilk and egg in small bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir until dry ingredients are just moistened. Transfer dough to lightly floured board. Knead dough for about 3 minutes, adding a little flour to prevent sticking. Shape into a flattened 8-inch circle. Place in prepared pan. Score top of dough with sharp knife to form an “X”, about 1/2-inch deep. Combine egg yolk and water in small bowl. Brush mixture on top of bread.
Step 3
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and top is golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store tightly covered in plastic wrap.
