> 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
> 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
> 2 tsp baking powder
> 1/4 tsp baking soda
> 1/2 tsp salt
> 1/3 cup granulated sugar
> 1 1/2 cups currants or raisins
> 1 tsp caraway seeds
> 1 egg
> 1 cup buttermilk (substitute equal parts yogurt or sour cream if needed)
> 6 tbsp butter, melted
> Coarse sugar, for topping (optional)


Preheat oven to 400°F, and grease a muffin tin. Mix all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, currants, and caraway seeds until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg, buttermilk, and melted butter until smooth.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, and mix until fully incorporated—to avoid overmixing, stop as soon as batter becomes smooth. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan until each cup is 3/4 full, then sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven, and let cool for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Serve with butter or jam!
