Irish Treacle Loaf


Irish Treacle Loaf

Fortified Recipe

This recipe is a type of soda bread, which means it uses sodium bicarbonate as a leavening agent instead of the traditional yeast. Early references are credited to Native Americans, but the Irish have made it their own; quick and easy to make without the need for long fermentations.
