This Thursday is St. Patrick’s Day and what comes to mind is corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread. But Irish barmbrack, which is sort of a fruitcake and bread with flavored dried fruit and spices. Although usually served around Halloween to celebrate their harvests, it is also a great St. Patrick’s Day treat.
