Anita's Sour Cream Irish Bread

Sandra McGrath


Irish bread has a taste of it's own and sometimes comes out dry.This recipe that my mother-in-law made every St. Patrick's Day is more moist and delicious than any I've had.Since she has passed,I now make it in tribute to her every St. Patrick's Day which makes it very special to my family.
