Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Toss mixture with your hands. Add softened butter in pieces to the flour mixture (also using your hands) until thoroughly blended. Add raisins and toss. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Add the buttermilk and blend well. Pour the egg mixture, a little at a time, into dry ingredients. Blend well with a wooden spoon. The dough should be heavy and just a bit wet. Dust hands with flour and mold dough into a round. Place the dough into a greased 9 inch round pan. Dust the top generously with flour. Using the wrong end of a fork, cut a deep cross into the dough to prevent cracking. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to an hour. Cook prior to servincg.

Personal Notes:
Think soda bread always requires an 8 oz. glass of water to get it down? Not this one! A stick of butter ensures a moist, flavorful bread.
