1 9-inch round bread


  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream

  • ¾ cup raisins


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, caraway seeds, baking powder, salt, and baking soda until the mixture is well combined. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the sour cream. Gently stir the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture until the dough just comes together; mix in raisins. Spoon the dough into the prepared springform pan.

  3. Bake until the bread has risen and the top is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out clean. Cool the bread in the pan for 10 minutes before attempting to loosen the sides of the pan for removal. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
