Why I Love This Recipe

This is a round buttermilk loaf with currants that resembles nothing so much as a giant scone. Enjoy this bread for breakfast


Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup dried currants


Directions

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into flour mixture with pastry cutter. Add buttermilk until dough is soft. Stir in currants.


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Form dough into a 7 inch round. Place on a lightly oiled cake pan or cookie sheet. Cut 1/2 inch deep cross side to side. Score with cross 1/2 inch deep on the top.


Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 40 minutes.
