    Serves: 8 

    • 3 cups plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 tablespoons white sugar
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 2 tablespoons margarine, melted

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a cast iron skillet.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and sugar. Toss the raisins with the flour mixture until coated. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, buttermilk and melted margarine. Stir until all of the dry ingredients are absorbed. Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and knead for a few quick turns, just to even out the dough. Handle the dough as little as possible. Pat into a flat circle, and place into the prepared pan.
    3. Bake the bread for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
