I will make Cheddar Cheese Irish Soda Bread this afternoon, but I also made a few Irish desserts for after dinner. Tea Brack, also known as Irish Freckle Bread, resembles a fruit cake often served for breakfast.
Tea Brack this past Sunday. I used hot Irish Breakfast Tea, poured over dried fruits; the recipe called for raisins, currants, pitted prunes, and chopped dates, but I didn't have prunes, so I used a cup of dried cranberries, which I liked very much.
This morning, I made another recipe from that email--Pistachio Shortbread.
Hope you have a lovely day celebrating St. Patrick...I must go and bake my soda bread. Enjoy!
