1/4 cup Sue Bee® Honey

2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup margarine or shortening

1 tablespoon caraway seeds

1/2 cup raisins


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 honey to flour mixture; stir to make soft dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface to knead 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth.

If dough seems too dry, add a little more buttermilk.

If it seems too sticky, add a little more flour.

Shape into flattened round ball and place on greased cookie sheet.

Brush top with additional milk and cut an "X" in the top with a sharp knife.

Bake at 375 F for 40 to 50 minutes, until golden brown and crusty.
