Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine flours, buttermilk, cornmeal, salt, baking soda, water, egg, molasses, honey, butter, and yeast in the bread machine and process on the dough setting. Add the currants and caraway seeds just before the final kneading. Remove from the machine, punch down, and cover with the bread machine "pan." Let dough rest for 15 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Punch the dough down, and form it into an 8-inch circle, slightly flattened. Place the dough on the parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise until nearly doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Remove the plastic wrap and cut a large X into the top of the dough with a sharp knife. Bake for 15 minutes on the middle oven rack, then reduce the oven temperature to 350F degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until brown and done through. Serve warm.

Some tips before you make your soda bread:

Sift the dry ingredients together several times to ensure that the soda is well distributed. Do not over handle the dough.
