Category Irish Baking

There is an Irish cake for every special occasion, and our Irish Baking Section helps you pick out the right one for yours. Authentic and easy to follow, our Irish baking recipes will have you serving up perennial classics like Irish apple cake/tart. As well as seasonal perfections such as the fortune-telling Irish tea cake, made as part of the traditional Samhain rituals enacted by the Celts at Halloween. And sometimes even used to decide who would be sacrificed to the gods!

Irish bread recipes abound in this section, too. With the focus being on the traditional breads that have been made in Ireland for hundreds of years. In our exploration of the connection food brings to people across cultures, there is also the odd Serbian bread or Polish bread. Brought to compare alongside an unleavened bread recipe such as the perhaps a little too world renowned and picture-friendly Irish soda bread.
