Let's Make It
Mix flour, 1/2 cup of the cereal, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl until well blended. Gradually add oil, stirring until mixture forms fine crumbs. Add raisins and caraway seed; mix well.
Place buttermilk, eggs and orange zest in large bowl; beat with wire whisk until well blended. Add flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
Place dough on floured surface; knead 10 times. Shape into ball; place on greased baking sheet which has been sprinkled with remaining 2 Tbsp. cereal. Flatten to 7-inch round loaf; cut 1/4-inch-deep 4-inch-long "X" in center of loaf.
Bake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
Prepare and cool as directed. Drizzle with a simple powdered sugar glaze made by stirring 1 to 2 Tbsp. milk or water into 1 cup powdered sugar until desired consistency.
Store leftover bread in sealable plastic bag for up to 1 day. Freeze for longer storage.
