I have been making this bread since I was a young girl many moon's ago lol! I am from Ireland and I love this bread with a cup of hot tea and good Irish butter on it.I make this every year for my friends and neighbours for St. Patrick's day and it is a hit with everyone.It is a bread best eaten on the day you make it other wise good toasted with butter and jam of your choice.I hope you enjoy!!! :)
