WELL, IT’S HALLOWEEN, the spookiest day of the year. 

Among many traditions for Oíche Shamhna is the barmbrack. 

There was a bit of chatter on social media yesterday about how the loaves should be cut after a woman posted a photo of a “crime scene” in which her husband had cut the barmbrack into triangular slices, as you would with a birthday cake. 

So, today we want to know… What’s the correct way to slice a barmbrack?


Poll Results:

In thin slices, of course (6952)
It doesn't matter what way it's cut (2696)
Triangular slices  (629)
I don't know (388)
