This is awesome it like a cake or put jam butter or anything else on it like soda bread.....i used slightly less sugar and buttermilk instead of sour partner thought it was delicious - 26 Jun 2014


A lovely recipe. Very easy to make, lovely and moist, with a subtle rather than overpowering sweetness. It would be ideal to serve, buttered, for afternoon tea. Its very more-ish so I don't think a loaf would last too long! - 22 Jul 2011


More of a cake than a bread but amazing none the less! - 29 Jul 2010
