  3. Beat buttermilk, egg, honey, and orange zest together in a bowl. Pour buttermilk mixture, currants, and raisins into flour mixture; stir with a wooden spoon until a wet, sticky dough comes together.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes until golden brown and fragrant. Transfer loaves to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

  7. Serve and enjoy.
