On March's Show: Irish Soda Bread

2 cups flour
2 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. golden raisins, brown raisins, or currants
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
3 T. shortening
3 T. butter
2 t. carraway seeds
1 c. buttermilk

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Add raisins and nuts and toss. Cut in butter and shortening
using a pastry blender, two knives, or a food processor until
combined and butter/shortening pieces are no bigger than
pea-sized. Slowly add buttermilk until mixture is soft and holds
together (you may not need the whole cup).
Turn dough out onto floured cutting board and knead for 1 to 2
minutes. Form into a round loaf and cut a cross into the top.
Place on baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for approx. 45
minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
