fast.cook's picture
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon, cold, cut into small pieces (unsalted)
  Currants 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (dried)
  Caraway seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Buttermilk 1 Cup (16 tbs) (low fat)

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and lightly dust with flour.
2 Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the currants and caraway seeds. Add the buttermilk and stir with a wooden spoon just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Knead the mixture in the bowl just until it forms dough, 5-6 times. Shape into a 6-inch circle and transfer to the baking sheet.
3 With a sharp knife, cut a 1/2-inch-deep X over the surface of the circle. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes and serve warm or cool completely on a rack. Cut into 12 wedges.
