Why I Love This Recipe

Recipe Backstory: It came all the way from Ireland

Chemistry Information:

A chemical change or a clue that a chemical change has occurred is the smell when the bread is done baking or the color change in the dough. A physical reaction would be shaping the dough or mixing the ingredients together.
