Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp sugar
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup golden raisins (sultanas)
- zest of 1 orange
- 1 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and sugar. Stir in raisins, golden raisins, and orange zest.
Make a well in the center of the bowl and add one cup of the buttermilk. Use a fork to help form the dough. Gradually add remaining buttermilk until dough is slightly tacky.
On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 30 seconds, then transfer to lined baking sheet.
Flatten the dough to about an eight-inch disc. Take a sharp knife and score the dough in a cross shape.
Place in oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden, and until the bottom of the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
