Irish Oatmeal Bread

Vickie Parks


There are several different recipes for Irish Oat Bread, and I have about six recipes in my own recipe collection. But this is the one I use the most often because it's really easy to prepare, it uses common pantry items that I usually have on hand, and it's great with a variety of different meals.
