This lovely spice bread is served in Irish homes at tea and whenever anyone wants a slice.

My mothers father was Irish, I am lucky to have sampled many Irish breads growing up. This is not my grandfathers recipe but it is good. Truly, one of my personal favorite Irish breads .... hope you will enjoy.
