DIRECTIONS

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325ºF.
  • Whisk the buttermilk and oil in a medium bowl; set aside.
  • Whisk 1 cup all-purpose flour, the whole-wheat flour, raisins, caraway seeds, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the buttermilk mixture with a wooden spoon until thoroughly moistened.
  • Dust a clean, dry work surface with the remaining 1 teaspoon flour. Turn the dough out onto the work surface and knead for 30 seconds, just until it coheres. Shape into a round loaf about 6 inches in diameter and 1 inch high. Use a sharp knife or a new razor blade to cut a "X" about 1/2-inch deep in the top of the loaf.
  • Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray, place the loaf on it, and bake until lightly browned and crusty, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
