Authentic Irish Soda bread

So I was checking out one of my favorite sites for kids crafts today looking for St Patty's day crafts and came across this awesome bread recipe! The whole family loved it and that never happens! lol It was also really easy and healthy.

Authentic Irish Soda Bread

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter, chilled
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients.

2. Cut in the butter until it is pea-sized. Stir in the raisins and buttermilk or yogurt. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, knead 1 minute, and shape into a disk.

3. Cut an "X" in the top and bake on a greased baking sheet for 45 to 50 minutes. Makes one 8-inch-wide loaf. (I made the bread on a cookie sheet and it was really neat looking!)
