Tasty Tuesday: Irish Soda Bread

Turn your oven to 375 degrees.

Stir together:
1 2/3c all purpose flour
2tbsp sugar
1tsp baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt

Then add:
1 cup dried currants

In a measuring cup, mix together
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 large egg

Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients, stirring until combined.  Make a bread ball and place it on a well greased baking sheet.  Cut a cross in the top of the bread.  Bake for 40 minutes, or until done.  Serve with Irish (or my favorite- Icelandic!) butter.
