I liked this. At first bite, I wasn't sure what to think. I have never made an Irish bread. It sort of tasted like a beer bread, but then it wasn't quite sweet like one. It was more like a giant buttery and crunchy biscuit. I loved the crunchy outer coating and the inside was nice and soft. Later, I am going to try to cut each 1/4 or wedge into about 5 slices using my bread knife and guide. Unless one has a toaster oven, and could lay the slices flat, I am not sure how this would be toasted though. It might be easier after refrigerating. This is an extremely filling type bread. I will probably attempt it again, but more for something like St. Patrick Day. I found another recipe on here, basically the same, but fits in a 9x5 loaf pan for everyday. I flattened this to the size I wanted it for slicing, before baking. Note, though, it will puff up a little but it will widen to about double the size it went in the oven! Unlike some recipes I did follow this near exact with the good reviews. Only change was subbing salted butter for margarine, kneading directly in the bowl, and baking on parchment. It did take the full hour to bake.
