"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:
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. (Hand is preferred to mixer.) Add egg, raisins, caraways seeds and buttermilk and stir until moist. Mixture will be thick and sticky. Pour or "plop" into the middle of a greased and floured pie or bread pan. No need to spread dough out...it will spread out during baking.

Bake at 350 F. for 50-60 minutes until brown on top and it looks crusty but not too hard. Take out and cool....or eat it piping hot!

Personal Notes:
If you make 4 loaves at a time (and use a quart of buttermilk).....the bread freezes very well. Be sure to use 4 separate bowls or it will be hard to mix the ingredients.
