San Francisco Soda BreadFrom OCEAN BEACH BED & BREAKFAST
Makes 3 medium loaves
5 cups flour
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl. Add butter; using your fingertips, rub until coarse crumbs are formed. Add raisins and caraway seeds; stir to mix. Set aside.
In a separate bowl with a fork, mix buttermilk and egg. Fold this into the dough, mixing only until well mixed. The dough is now very sticky.
Divide the dough between the three buttered medium loaf pans, filling 2/3 full. Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely. Remove from pans.
Store tightly wrapped in aluminum foil at room temperature. Can be frozen after it has cooled. Warm before serving.
