Soda Bread

3 c white flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
12 T sweet butter
2 c golden raisins
1 large egg
1/2 c wildflower honey
1 c buttermilk

Preheat 350 F oven.

Soften the raisins in boiling water for 10 minutes, then drain.
Sift dry ingredients together. Cut butter into fingernail-sized
pieces and cut into the flour mixture until mixture looks the size
of shelling peas. Add the raisins and toss until separate and evenly
coated with flour.

Beat together the egg, honey and buttermilk until very frothy and
rich-looking. Pour into the flour mixture and mix until just
moistened. It should be very rough, and not develop any gluten.

Butter and flour a heavy 12 inch round pan. Transfer batter and
allow it to fill the pan, but retain a rounded loaf appearance (the
first time I made this, I used a 30 X 15 glass baking dish and
mounded the loaf in the center). Bake at 350 F for about 55 minutes
and then start checking the center every 5 minutes until set.

Serve warm with butter.
