    It might be the flour that is the problem, so maybe you arent to blame for your 'manhole covers' :lol::lol: American and British flour are very different and i think the buttermilk is probably different as well.
    My Mum owned a bakery back in Ireland and we were spoiled by her wonderful home baked bread every day. People used to come from miles around to buy it. I have brought my kids up on it as well. The best bread in the whole world has to be this - Veda (pronounced V da). It is peculiar to Northern Ireland and is a gooey malt loaf which can be eaten buttered or toasted.

    Mags, your bread looks wonderful. We had a bread that looked like that when we visited Ireland. It was soft, with a soft crust, and light in color. Do you think that might be your's? It made wonderful ham sandwiches. :yes:

    Interestingly talking to the import guy there are some items he is not allowed to bring in from the states as they contain ingredients banned under EU poisons laws :unsure:

    It's true. They put a lot of stuff in their processed food that is on the banned substance list for the EU. :eek:

    That's why I only ever have 1 Twinkie per trip. :D

    It sounds very like it. However I wonder if it was because it is a bread that is found more in the north of Ireland. Im glad you enjoyed the Irish bread. I love going home to get my quota.
