- Canola oil, for pan
- 2 1/2 c. buttermilk, plus more for brushing
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 c. dried currants
- 3 c. all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
- 1 c. whole wheat flour, spooned and leveled
- 1/4 c. wheat germ
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. kosher salt
- 6 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for serving
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a 9-inch cast-iron skillet or cake pan. Whisk together buttermilk and egg in a bowl. Add currants and stir to combine.
- Whisk together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a second bowl. Using your finger-tips, rub butter into flour mixture until small pebbles form. Create a well in center of flour mixture. Add buttermilk mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon in one direction and gradually incorporating, until combined (dough will be sticky).
- Using slightly wet hands, shape dough into a ball; transfer to prepared pan. Let rest 10 minutes. Brush with buttermilk. Cut a large “X” about 1 inch deep in top of loaf, wiping blade with a damp cloth between cuts. Bake until golden brown and internal temperature registers 195°F to 200°F on an instant read thermometer, 50 to 60 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely. Serve with butter.
