Saint Patrick's Last Hurrah Here - Barm Brack Bread

Just a last bit of the Irish for Saint Patrick's Day today....I love the antique postcards, don't you? By famoue artist Eleanor Clapsaddle. And I made an Irish Barm Brack for our Saint Patrick's Day afternoon tea and corned beef and cabbage dinner now in the crock pot...the recipe is from...

A Little Irish Cookbook by John Murphy, illustrated by Karen Bailey from 1986...which has some great recipes...I've had this for years.

And here is my finished result...yummm!  I was very happy with it, if I do say so myself! Served on our Irish Royal Tara serving plate...we have other items in the pattern at Antiques And Teacups website.

So a Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you!
