Quick Irish Soda Bread

INGREDIENTS
2 ounces currants or raisins
1 1/2 (one and one-half) fluid ounces Irish whiskey
1 1/2 (one and one-half) cups unbleached white flour, sifted
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 (one and one-half) teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cups low fat buttermilk or soy substitute

METHOD
Soak currants in whiskey until plump, at least one hour. Sift dry
ingredients together. Stir in currants and whiskey. Stir in
buttermilk, making a stiff batter. Spread batter into a greased 8-inch
round cake pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until well browned
and firm, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes.
Invert and slice into pie slices to serve. Yields one loaf.
