DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°; butter a 10-inch diameter circle in the center of a baking sheet.
  • In a big bowl, stir the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, caraway seeds, and salt.
  • Cut the butter into ½ inch cubes and distribute them over the flour mixture.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl, stir the buttermilk and egg together; add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • The dough will be sticky; with lightly floured hands, knead in the nuts and raisins until evenly distributed.
  • With lightly floured hands, pat the dough into a 9-inch diameter circle in the center of the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush the egg yolk mixture over the top and sides of the dough.
  • With a serrated knife, cut into 8 wedges.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a pick comes out clean.
