- 4 cups Flour
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 1 large pinch Salt, (approx 1 tsp)
- 1 large Egg
- 1 1/2 cups Buttermilk
- 1 cup Dried cranberries or Raisins
- 1 tsp Baking soda
- 1 tsp Corn Starch
Step By Step
- Soften the butter. Mix your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add the softened butter in small chunks. Start to mix together into clumps.
- Make a well in the center of the mix. Add the egg and buttermilk into the well. Stir until mixed. The dough will be chunky, that is fine as long as the powdered ingredients are mixed through the dough.
- Finally, stir in the dried fruit. You can substitute dates, raisins, or cranberries to suit your tastes.
- Once they are incorporated, form your dough ball. Place the ball in a well sprayed Pyrex dish. Take a knife and create cuts in the dough to allow the bread to bake evenly.
- Place in a 450 degree oven for around 40 minutes or until the bottom is hollow when you tap on it.
