    4       c            All-Purpose Flour, Sifted
    1       t            Baking Soda
    1       tb           Sugar
    1       c            Dried Currants

   Soda Bread: This bread, which many consider the Irish
   soda bread, is usually served at high teas and other
   important occasions.
   
   Sift flour, sugar, salt and baking soda into a large
   bowl.  Stir in currants to coat with flour.  Stir in
   buttermilk just until flour is moistened.  Knead dough
   in bowl with lightly floured hands, 10 times. Turn
   dough out onto lightly floured cookie sheet and shape
   into an 8-inch round. Cut a cross into top with a
   floured knife.  Bake in hot oven (400 degrees), for 40
   minutes, until loaf turns golden and gives a hollow
   sound when tapped.  Cool completely before slicing.
