Preheat your oven to 350 F. Coat a 9" round cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter. Stir together until completely combined.
Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Add raisins. Using a rubber spatula, combine all the ingredients until it is just moistened. (Dough will be sticky)
Sprinkle a counter top or surface with flour. Turn dough out onto surface. Knead several times and form into a ball.
Place the dough into the greased cake pan and cut an "X" in the middle of the dough. Place into the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then place on cooling rack. Place a cookie sheet under the cooling rack and coat the warm bread with Vanilla Glaze (optional).
