Ingredients

1
cup 5-grain rolled whole-grain cereal or old-fashioned oats
2
cups whole wheat flour
1
cup all-purpose flour
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon baking soda
1
teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup firm butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
1/2
cup golden raisins
1
egg
1 1/2
cups buttermilk
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the cereal.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix remaining cereal, the flours, brown sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins.
  • 3 In small bowl, beat egg and buttermilk with wire whisk until well blended. Reserve 1 tablespoon buttermilk mixture. Stir remaining buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients, stirring just until mixture is moistened. On floured surface, knead dough 5 or 6 times until dough is combined and holds together.
  • 4 On cookie sheet, shape and press dough into 7-inch round. Cut large X, 1/4 inch deep, into top of dough, using sharp knife. Brush top of dough with reserved buttermilk mixture; sprinkle with reserved cereal.
  • 5 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Cool slightly before serving.
