"This is my family's traditional St. Patrick's Day bread. My grandmother has had this recipe for longer than I've been alive. I was SHOCKED to find out this wasn't real Irish Soda Bread, but instead more commonly known as Spotted Dog. Whatever you call it, it is unbeatable topped with a bit of butter."

This was good! I made it to compare it to my M-I-L's recipe she calls Scon (rhymes with Ron, she's from County Caven). I have yet to find any similar recipe to hers or anything called Scon. T...

Very good. Sweeter than I expected. Will try it again with less sugar. I did use 2 cups of whole wheat flour to add some grains and it turned out really well.
