    Totally delicious - I work at Yummly, and after tasting it in the office, I had to make it at home. I subbed Craisins for the currants, and the whole family loved it.

    Yummy! I work at Yummly and fell in love with the recipe when the developer made it in the office, so I knew I had to try it myself for St. Patrick's Day! The bread is a little sweet (almost muffin-like?) and was perfect for dipping in beef stew. The bottom got a little overdone on mine -- I used a dark sheet pan with parchment paper. Might try using my silpat next time (or using a skillet like the recipe recommended!).

    Not very tasty. Was glue like and heavy.
