"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Stir well. Add the butter and rub in until the butter disappears in the dry ingredients. Stir in the caraway seeds and the raisins. Whisk the buttermilk and egg together and mix into the dough mixture. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and fold it over several times, shaping it into a round loaf. Transfer this to a pan covered with foil. Cut a cross in the top. (This lets the fairies escape.) Bake for 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350 and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes more until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and serve with butter.
