|2 tablespoons||Dry yeast|
|¾ cup||Warm water|
|½ cup||Vegetable oil|
|¼ cup||White sugar|
|2 tablespoons||White vinegar|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|3½ cup||White flour|
|½ cup||Flour for kneading|
Combine yeast with water in a mixing bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients except the currants & flour. Mix well. Add 1½ c flour & mix. Stir in currants. Mix in the remaining 2 c of flour. Remove from bowl & knead, adding more flour as necessary. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is pliable. Return to mixing bowl, cover with a damp cloth & set aside until it has doubled.
Punch dough down, turn out onto a floured board, cover & let rest for 10 minutes. Divide the dough into 18 pieces. Roll into a ball & place on a greased baking sheet 1 ½ inches apart. Flatten slightly.
If you wish, using a sharp knife, cut out a cross in the top of each bun. Cover with a damp cloth & let rise till doubled.
Heat oven to 375F. Lightly brush the top of each bun with vegetable oil & bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks.
