Spotted Dog

Also called railway cake, this recipe starts out as Irish soda bread..

Adapted from numerous recipes found on the internet

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup oat flour
2 teaspoons non-refined sugar or other sweetener
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 egg

Sift the dry ingredients together then add the caraway, raisins and milk.  The dough will be soft, damp and a little tacky.  Turn out into a standard loaf pan and bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until the loaf passes the toothpick test.

Try it toasted with jam for breakfast.

Tastes best the 1st day, but will last 2 if sealed in an airtight container.
