Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, milk and yogurt.Set aside at room temperature.

In a second bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients into it. Mix with a wooden spoon.

Add raisins and mix well.

Turn the dough out on a work surface and knead 1 minute.

Divide the dough in half and shape each piece into a ball. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Using a serrated knife, cut a deep X in the top of each loaf.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 50 minutes or until a paring knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Transfer to a rack and cool 15 minutes before serving.


If your raisins are very dry, plump them in boiling water and drain before adding them to the dough.
