It's at its best served with homemade coleslaw, butter and REAL ham!

  1. Mix all the ingredients together. Mix should be quite wet.
  2. Shape into a round and cross the top or place into a lined loaf tin.
  3. Brush the top with a little milk and bake 45 mins to 1 hour in a 150 degree fan oven.
  4. When cooked, remove from tin (if using) and wrap in a clean dry tea towel.
  5. Serve with lots of Irish butter!

 

NOTE: Can be easily adapted to a white or a fruit soda bread - just use all white flour, add 3 tbs sugar and as much fruit as you like if making a fruit soda.
