I found this recipe tucked in my Amy Vanderbilt's Cookbook. This one was copyrighted in 1961. The recipe is on a newspaper without a date.
The note on top of the recipe says:
tis' Country Cork Soda Bread....with love and a cross to keep the devil out! Happy St. Patrick's Day . I am going to make it for St. Patrick's Day, I have not tried this recipe yet but looks wonderful and easy to make.
