The Sign of the Cross

Irish Soda Bread, both White and Brown is traditionally made by hand in a round shape. A deep cross is cut through the bread, before cooking, to let the fairies out!

wishing you success w/ developing and building up your blog; it looks interesting already. i must confess, i do not know too much about irish baking. i have, though, seen some interesting recipes in some of my ("english") cookery books.
