Traditional Irish Baking

This class celebrates the best of traditional Irish baking using recipes handed down by the generation of women who baked every day, not least my own granny.

I will be using my Granny Blacker’s griddle to demonstrate Potato Apple Bread which is uniquely Nothern Irish and very specific to County Armagh, the Orchard County renowned for it’s Bramley Apples.

Potato Apple Bread was always made by my mother for Halloween, it’s a bit like an apple tart but uses potato bread instead of pastry and is not for the faint-hearted, oozing with melted Irish butter and sugar.
