1½ cups whole wheat white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 teas raw organic sugar

2 teas orange zest
3 oz (2/3 cup) raisins


Preheat oven to 375°.

Mix all dry ingredients (first 5) in a large bowl with a whisk. Slowly add buttermilk stirring with a wooden spoon until a soft dough is formed. Add raisins, orange zest and knead the dough lightly on a sheet of wax paper or a floured surface for about 1 minute. Form into a round, slightly flattened shape.

Place on a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper or lightly spray cookie sheet with non fat butter spray. Bake about 40 minutes, until golden. To test if it’s done, insert a toothpick into the bread, if it comes out clean it is done. Let it cool on a bakers rack for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
Great with sugar free preserves.
