Preheat oven to 375oF, prepare pans. In a bowl combine first 6 ingredients. In another bowl stir together rest of ingredients except currants. Add dry mix to wet mix until just combined, stir in currants. Spoon into pans & bake

for 15-20 minutes or until done. Cool 5 minutes before removing muffins from pans.
