- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
- 1 egg large
- 1 ¾ cups buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons butter melted
Place rack in center of over and preheat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 9" by 5" pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, raisins, and caraway seeds).
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and buttermilk.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
Add the melted butter.
Spoon batter into prepared pan and bake for approximately 50 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool for 5 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and allow to cool entirely on a baking rack.
Store at room temperature wrapped airtight.
When measuring your flour by volume, it's important that you measure correctly. I like to first "fluff up" my flour with a whisk. Then I use a spoon to sprinkle it into a dry measure cup. Finally, I use a straight edge scraper to level off the excess.
