  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, whole-wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and raisins; stir until all the dry ingredients have been moistened.

  3. Turn the mixture out onto a floured board and knead 8 to 10 times. Form into 6 balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Score each ball into quarters with a sharp knife, making the cuts about 1/4-inch deep.

  4. Bake the breads 20 to 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and sound hollow when the bottoms are gently tapped. Serve warm.
