   I would like to share with you our family’s traditional
   Irish Bread Recipes which has always been a staple in our
   household.  These recipes are shared by fellow Hibernians
   throughout the Boston area:
   
   Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and soda, set
   aside.  Cream the margarine and sugar.  Add beaten egg and
   buttermilk, blend well.  Add liquid mixture to dry
   ingredients.  Mix by hand only until dry ingredients are
   moistened.  Fold in raisins, currants, and caraway seeds.
   Pour into greased 1 1/2 quart casserole.  Brush top with
   melted magarine.  Sprinkly with a little sugar.  Bake at
   375 degrees for 30 minutes, reduce heat to 325 degrees for
   30 minutes longer.  Test in the middle of the loaf before
   removing from oven.JM.
   (May be wrapped in aluminum foil and kept in the freezer
   for up to 6 months.)* If you do not have buttermilk
   available, you can used milk soured by vinegar.
