Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Had fun making this recipe. The only change I made was I replaced the sugar with cinnamon and was happy with results. I'll have to try my cast iron pan.
I have a friend at work whose wife makes this every St. Paddy's day to bring to us warm from the oven. Now I don't have to wait for the holiday to taste it. It's missing something, maybe a little salt, maybe a different kind of flour. But very good!
You can substitute 100% white whole wheat (soft white winter wheat) or Prairie Gold wheat and it will increase the nutritional count and fiber and the taste is the same. Bleached flour should be off everyone's diet - no nutritional value whatsoever and very bad for you.
A little high for calories but it's really very delicious!!
4 cups of flour need a full teaspoon of salt.
Is there a way to get rid of some of the sodium in this recipe for those who are dealing with hypertension?

Ingredients for Nikki ( not able to send you Sparkmail)
4 cups all-purpose white flour

3 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
2 cups of lowfat buttermilk
cup raisins
Thanks for sharing, but raisins are a new "add" to me.
Soda bread, for me, is a savoury, so I'd also reduce the amount of sugar.
This recipe is more like a Scottish tea-cake, than Irish soda bread.
