Do you like making bread? I soooooo love making bread. I would do it everyday if I had the time. The whole process of kneading & the smell. Oh my- swoon. So since I was just itching for an excuse to make some bread- I decided to bake some Irish Bannock for the all of us to enjoy. The fact that it’s March really did give me the perfect excuse to bust out my Irish recipes & create a few for all to enjoy!
This is a dense bread – a lot like soda bread. The raisins really make it great for breakfast.
I have such a fondness for making bread- of all kinds.
Makes the house smell amazing!!
Isn’t it gorgeous??!!! Sigh……I really do love bread. 🙂
