I decided to try making a yeast bread version of Irish Soda Bread. It worked pretty good!
Heat up 2 1/2 cups buttermilk to about 115.
Pour into large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp yeast and 2 cups bread flour.
Mix gently and let sit for 20 minutes.
Add 1/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 3/4 cup raisins. Add 5 cups of wheat bread flour.
Stir and then turn onto floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic.
Divide into 3 round loaves. Place onto greased baking sheet.
Let rise for 2o minutes in a 170 degree oven.
Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 20 minutes or until sound hollow when tapped.
Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter.
