Ingredients

2 c
all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
butter, softened

1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheated oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside.

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 and raisins.
3
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Form dough into a 7 inch round. Place on prepared baking sheet (or you can use an 8- or 9-inch round cake pan, greased). Using a sharp knife, score a 1/2 inch deep cross on the top. This allows the loaf to expand.
