This was a recipe that I made back on St. Patrick's Day but just have not gotten around to blogging it. It was very, very good. So good that you don't need to wait around and only make this for St. Patrick's Day. It reminded me of a sweet raisin bread that my mom used to buy at the bakery when I was a child. It's kind of in between a bread and a cake and just soooo delicious. I could easily find any excuse to make this again! This recipe came from Allrecipes.
I am looking so forward to this weekend at the beach and I'm hoping the weather holds up. The temps are going down since we have had a heat wave here the past week of 90 degree temperature. We're cooling off to the 60's and that's fine with me. Even though it's still to cool to swim it's always the right time to go to great seafood restaurants and that is what I am looking forward to!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
