Irish Soda Bread

4 c all purpose flour 2 c raisins
1/4 c sugar 1-1/3 c buttermilk
1t baking powder 1 egg, beaten
2 T caraway seed 1 t baking soda
1/4 c butter 1 egg yolk, beaten

Mix flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl; stir in caraway seed. Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse meal. Stir in raisins and set aside. Combine buttermilk, egg and baking soda; stir into flour mixture just enough to moisten. Turn onto floured board and knead lightly until dough is smooth; shope into a ball. Place in a greased 2-quart casserole dish; brush with egg yolk. Bake at 375 degrees for one hour. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from casserole dish. Makes one loaf.
