  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets.
  2. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and molasses in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, bran, cream of tartar, and baking soda in a separate large bowl, and make a well in the center. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the well, and stir until a soft dough forms. Stir in the golden raisins, then turn the dough out onto a well floured work surface, and knead 8 to 10 times before dividing into two round balls. Place the balls on the baking sheets and use a sharp knife to cut a 1/2 inch deep X into the tops of the dough balls. Brush with melted butter.
  3. Place the loaves into the preheated oven, and reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Wrap the loaves in light cotton towels for 10 minutes after they are removed from the oven.

Easy Wonderful. Have made it as per recipe and have added glazed fruit for a breakfast coffee cake. The banshee howled and clapped her hands.

Very easy and tasty. Out of necessity, I had to alter a few things. I was running low on whole wheat flour and molasses, so I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour, and only...
