Low Fat Irish Soda Bread

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 TBS sugar
1 1/2 cups 1% buttermilk
2/3 cup Raisins

Mix all dry ingredients (first 5) in a large bowl with a whisk. Slowly add buttermilk stirring with a wooden spoon until a soft dough is formed. Add raisins. Knead the dough lightly on a sheet of wax paper or a floured surface for about a minute. Form into a round, slightly flattened shape.

Place on a cookie sheet lined a parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, make an X at the top about 1/2 inch deep. Bake about 40 minutes, until golden. To test if it’s done, insert a toothpick into the bread if it comes out clean it is done. Let it cool on a bakers rack about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
