Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 -2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup currants
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet, set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange peel. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in currants. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine egg and buttermilk. Add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.
  3. On a lightly floured surface gently knead dough to form a dough (about 4 or 5 times). Shape into a 7-inch round loaf.
  4. Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet. With a sharp knife, make 2 slashes across the top of the loaf to form an X, cutting all the way to the edge. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
