1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 Cup sugar
stick of butter (leave out of fridge to soften)
1 egg
1 1/3 Cup buttermilk
2 Cups raisins or currants

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly flour a pie pan.
Mix dry ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
Add butter and mix with hands until there are course crumbs.
Add egg and buttermilk.
Mix with hands until the mixture begins to form a dough. Add raisins and mix a little more until dough can hold together.
Put dough in pie pan, filling to the edge but not overflowing the pan and bake for roughly an hour (until golden; if it browns too fast then turn the heat down a bit).
