Soda Bread

This one probably came from my parents' Irish dance friends. It makes cute round loaves that are chewy and studded with raisins.

5 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 T baking powder
2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped raisins
3 1/2 cups nonfat buttermilk

Combine all ingredients. Mix until a ball forms. Turn onto a floured board and knead gently. Divide into four balls, shape into 6"x6" disks. Cut an X into the top of each and brush with buttermilk. Bake on a sprayed cookie sheet 40-50 minutes.

Makes 4 loaves. 1/8 loaf has 103 calories, 2 grams fat.
