* To Plump Raisins: Place raisins in a small saucepan and just cover with hot water. Simmer until raisins have absorbed the water.
Preheat oven to 350øF. Blend the flour and the next five ingredients. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until well blended. Mix in raisins. Add buttermilk all at one time, mix lightly to a soft dough. Turn the dough into a greased 9-inch round layer cake pan. Cut a cross into the top about ⅔ into the loaf. Brush top with melted butter and sprinkle with 4 teaspoons additional sugar. Bake 40 minutes or until brown.
Makes 1 loaf.
