    Chef Sean #2's Note:

    This Irish bread is wonderful hot from the oven smothered with fresh butter(none of that margarine spread business[at least in this case]). This recipe is from my Grandmother, who came to this country in the year 1900 from Ireland. Since she was always pretty poor(in possessions/money) this is a cheap to make recipe.

      i made this in a small loaf pan this morning. This is easy, cheap, and tastes great, I had it warm with butter this morning and then tried a slice toasted with lunch. Works well both ways. Thanks for posting Sean. Made for PAC pring 2010.

      it was a bit too dense for my taste, also it took me an additional 20 minutes to cook, and even then there was a spot of dough still in the center. Kind of chewy. Edible, but I wouldn't make it again.
