With this mind here are a couple of recipes - some traditional – others with a modern twist that the Irish will definitely be indulging in over the festivities!

Optional Topping:
To Cook
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C (400°F).
Mix the flour, bread soda and salt together in a bowl.
Combine the egg with the buttermilk and honey then mix into the flour.
Add a little more buttermilk if the mixture is dry – it should be a soft dough. Then pour the lot into a lightly oiled loaf tin.
Sprinkle the sesame seeds or porridge oats over the top of the loaf if using.
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
To know when it is cooked simply tap the bottom of the loaf – it will sound hollow when it is fully cooked.
Remove from the tin and wrap in a clean tea towel while cooling. This will keep the crust soft.
