This is an incredible bread recipe that comes together in no time. It looks incredible coming out of the oven, and the currants are an added bonus.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup currants

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Stir in the buttermilk and 3 tablespoons of the melted butter, using a fork, then stir in the currants. Once combined, the dough should come together. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead gently for just a few turns until the dough can be shaped into a 6-inch round (do not over-knead).

Place the shaped dough into a cast-iron skillet or sheet tray. Cut an "x" into the top of the round loaf, using a knife.

Bake until the center has cooked through (testing with a skewer), about 40 minutes. Slather with the remaining tablespoon melted butter.
