Easy Irish Brown Bread

Made this yesterday as an alternative to traditional soda bread and it was fabulous, Don't know why my baking time was so much longer than the recipe said -- I used my instant read and finally gave up after about 50 minutes and a temperature of 180, when I thought it might be too crusty. It might have been able to stay another few, but it was wonderful, moist with a great crust. I did brush it with melted butter before baking. They will be looking for this again!

Chocolate Velvet Honey Cake ?

This is a fabulous honey cake, and I have made one for the last few years. Everyone who comes loves it! Don't worry about the coca cola, it doesn't lend a distinct flavor. I do reduce the cloves a bit though. The chopped chocolate is great in it -- but I used mini-morsels once as a last minute substitution. And as we are not kosher, I make the dairy ganache.
