Please share…..This Rye Irish Soda Bread makes a quick and delicious afternoon tea. Just in time f0r St Patrick’s Day!! What could be better than a little afternoon tea or even breakfast on St patrick’s day then Irish Soda bread. I thought I might just have a quick little celebration seeing that my ancestors were from Ireland. My paternal Grandfather always proclaimed to be a 5th generation Australian. At school that was somewhat of a novelty and I was quite proud of it, though I didn’t realise it probably really did mean that my forebears, whoever they may have been on my Father’s side were convicts. Our Irish blood was not lost on my Mothers side either as my Maternal Grandmother met her husband in Hull, the North of England….
