  • “This was great!!I followed the recipe exactly, but I had to cook it a little longer as the inside was not done.So, I covered it in foil to prevent the top from burning, but otherwise it was excellent as written!!”

  • “Couldn’t ask for anything easier or yummier!!I will definitely be making this one again!I think we all liked it even better than cornbread.I did use 2 cups whole wheat flour and one white.Delicious served with Irish stew!!”

  • “I made this bread with and without raisin’s for St. Patty’s Day and my guest and family LOVED it!This recipe is a keeper :)”

  • “Okay, I am of the opinion that “if it tastes good, who cares about tradition?” That being said, I was STOKED to find this recipe. No “cutting in” the butter, no kneading……perfect!!! I made mine in muffin tins for easier packing of leftovers in lunches. They came out great and my son is a huge fan. Thanks, Manda!!!!Forgot to mention:I baked at 350 for 30 minutes, and it yielded 16 muffins :)”

  • “I’m sorry but I didn’t like it at all.”
