(we prefer the raisins)

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1½ cups 1% buttermilk
⅔ cup raisins

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375.
Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly add buttermilk, stirring until a soft dough is formed.
Add raisins, and lightly knead the dough on a floured surface for about a minute. Form into a round, slightly flattened shape.
Place dough on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife, make an “x” on the top of the dough, about ½-inch deep. Bake until golden brown, about 40 minutes.
