Add to the above and rub with fingers until a coarse meal forms.

Make a well in the above and add to the above.  Gently mix.

  • 1 cup buttermilk.

Mix into the above.

  • 2/3 cup raisins.

With floured hands, form dough ball (it will be sticky).  Flatten slightly in a 8″ cake pan.  Sprinkle with 1 tbsp sugar and cut an X on top.  Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes.
