1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

3 Tbsp sugar

2 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp finely grated orange or lemon zest

5 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

½ cup dried cranberries

With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Stir to blend.

Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add buttermilk, and stir until just combined; do not overmix. Use a little more buttermilk if dough is too dry to work with.

Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface; shape into an 8-inch round. Transfer to baking sheet. Cut circle into 8 wedges; space them 1cm apart (to prevent sticking, dust knife with flour). Bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.
