Hello everyone, 

I am new to the list and just lurk alot.  I wanted to ask, I have been 
looking for an Irish bread recipe I saw once 12 years ago.  This is a 
Traditional Irish bread that was usually eaten in the Pub with a stout (?) 
or mug of warm ale on a cold day.  This bread is kind of dark in color 
light maybe an almost bran type color and texture with a sweet taste.  
Does anyone know what bread this is and if possible can I get the recipe. 
 I am interested in types of traditional Irish breads and the recipes and 
traditions behind them.  If anyone has any info please let me know at
