Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round cast iron skillet or a 9-inch round baking or cake pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour (reserving 1 T.), sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, raisins and caraway seeds. In a small bowl, blend eggs, buttermilk and sour cream.
Stir the liquid mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened. Knead dough in bowl about 10 to 12 strokes. Dough will be sticky.

Personal Notes:
This is the most delicious bread -- and easy to make. If I use x-large eggs, I'll add a few extra T. flour. As stated, the dough will be sticky. I make this with a traditional Irish boiled dinner, especially on St. Pat's Day !
