This is my mother's recipe. A fantastic, classic fruit soda that is heavenly sliced into wedges and served with butter. Brushing a bit of milk over the top ensures you get a lovely brown crust.
I used half the amount of raisins and about 2/3 of the sugar and it came out really fine. Actually, 300g of raisins would, I believe, be too much. And it was fully baked after 40 minutes. - 05 Mar 2016
I just pulled this out of the oven and tried a piece, and I really like it. It's slightly sweet and the crumb almost reminds me of cornbread. My husband just tried a bite and said, "Oh, that is good!" It doesn't matter to me if it's truly authentic or not, I just wanted something tasty to serve. Thank you for an easy and tasty recipe to serve with St. Patrick's Day dinner! - 16 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I had to make this since my ancestors are from County Cork! It is awesome right out of the oven. No butter needed. I didn't have raisins, but I didn't miss them at all. - 17 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
