Serves: 8

A traditional Irish-inspired round quick bread made with buttermilk and currants or raisins.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    3 tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup cold butter
    1 1/4 cups buttermilk*
    1/2 cup currants or raisins


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Combine all ingredients except buttermilk and currants in large bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and currants just until moistened.
    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead gently 10 times. Shape into ball. Place onto greased baking sheet. Pat into 6-inch circle.
    Cut 1/2-inch deep “X” in top of dough with sharp knife. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

    *Substitute 4 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1 1/4 cups. Let stand 10 minutes.
