Just a few recipes from Country Living I downloaded and wanted to share.

1. Heat oven to 400'F. Lightly grease an 8-inch springform pan. In large
bowl, combine 2 3/4 C flour, the sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and
salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until coarse crumbs
form. Fold in currants.

2. Add buttermilk and mix just until dry ingredients are moist- ened and a
stiff dough forms. Stir in additional flour only if nec- essary to make
dough manageable, being careful to not overmix. Press dough into greased
pan; with knife, score top into 4 equal wedges. Brush top with melted
butter, if desired.

3. Bake 20 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350'F and bake 30 to 35
minutes longer or until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the
center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes; remove from pan and cool
completely on wire rack before slicing. Soda bread is best the day it is
