 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       c            All purpose/bread flour
    3       ts           Baking powder
    1       t            Salt to taste
      3/4   ts           Baking soda
    1       c            Raisins
    2                    Eggs
    1 1/2   c            Buttermilk
 
   Stir flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and
   raisins together. Separately, fork-blend eggs and
   buttermilk, then add to dry ingredients. Stir until
   sticky batter is formed. Scrape batter onto well
   floured surface and knead lightly. Shape batter into
   ball, then place in round non-stick casserole that has
   been sprayed with cooking spray. Mark a cross in the
   center, using a sharp knife. Bake uncovered in
   preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 1/4 hours.
   
   Wait 10-15 minutes before attempting to remove bread
   from casserole, then cool on wire rack. If desired,
   cut loaf into quarters and then slice thinly.
