  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 to 2

    Tbsp. sugar

  • ½

    tsp. baking soda

  • ½

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    Tbsp. finely shredded orange peel

  • 3

    Tbsp. butter

  • cup currants

  • 1

    egg, lightly beaten

  • ¾

    cup buttermilk


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a baking sheet, set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, 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
