The Ingredients

– All-Purpose Flour: 3 to 3 ½ cups

– Baking Soda: 1 teaspoon

– Salt: 2 teaspoons

– Buttermilk: 1 ½ cups (shake before use)

– Raisins: 1 cup (optional)

The Instructions

The Instructions

1. Prepare the oven by preheating it to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Take a large bowl, put in the salt, 2 ½ cups flour, and baking soda, and whisk them well. Then, add raisins along with the buttermilk. Mix them well together.

3. Lightly sprinkle flour on your work surface and transfer the above mixture onto it. Work on the dough till it becomes smooth. If needed, add more flour so that the dough isn’t sticky. Make sure it has a good consistency.

4. Now that your dough is ready, sprinkle it with flour. Lay out an ungreased baking sheet as the base. Put the dough on the sheet and make it into a loaf.

5. Now, using a sharp knife, make one-inch deep cuts across the top of the loaf. Your bread is ready to bake.

6. Next, take your loaf and put it in the oven, and bake for 35 minutes or till it turns golden brown. Your bread is now ready!



When taken out of the oven, put a knife into the bread. If it comes out clean, it is perfectly cooked. One of these tips by the user is to keep a close eye on the temperature with an oven thermometer if your old oven doesn’t properly show the heat. Further, she added a ¼ cup of flour and gently kneaded it on the wooden board to make it soft and full of moisture. She recommends adding a bit more flour to make it less doughy. For the best experience, slather on some room-temperature butter for delicious creaminess. You can also opt for some jam or marmalade, or serve it as a side with some stew!
