    DoubletheGarlic's Note:

    "The Creek Indians in Tennessee and Georgia were using corn ... for generations before the European settlers arrived.... This simple list of ingredients found in this famous Southern quick bread resembles Irish soda or wheaten and I cannot help but imagine how the Ulster-Scots settlers improvised and adapted to the new found colourful cornmeal. "I love the crunchy outside contrasted with the soft cake-like consistency of this bread whilst the fennel seeds provide an interesting liquorish flavor that blends perfectly with the sweet figs and salty cheese!" By Judith McLoughlin in The Ulster-Scot, official publication of the Ulster-Scots Agency, April 2011
