  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1/3 cup margarine or shortening

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

  • Mix together flour, baking soda and caraway seeds in large bowl; cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in raisins.
  • Add buttermilk and Sue Bee® honey to flour mixture; stir to make soft dough.

  • Brush top with additional milk and cut an "X" in the top with a sharp knife.
  • Bake at 375 F for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and crusty.
