Hi starving in the USA go to Dolly's thread, Who do you know from the Market and you will get a lot of those recipes there.

Good Luck.  .Val  O0

There are a few Irish Bakeries in the US Paddy depends on where you are, If you google Irish Baked goods you might find a local supplier. I live in CT and have access to a bakery that makes a decent Plain Sliced loaf it's called Batch Bread. I make my own farls like Dolly, do have a recipe for baps which I will post later for you. As far as Paris buns and snowballs are concerned, I agree with Val you should go to Dollys' thread in 'who do you know from the Markets', she is a great baker and has some lovely recipes there from home. As far as I know Veda is a patented recipe and not available to the public  :-[

The bap was the best thing ever to come out of Belfast.  The veda was an import from Scotland and is about 50 years younger.  Nothing beats a well done crusty Belfast bap.

Belfast Baps

2 and a half cups warm water
pinch salt
pinch of sugar
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
6 and a half to 7 cups of bread flour
rice flour

Pour warm water in bowl. Water should be just warm to the touch about 90-100 degrees. Add sugar and yeast. Stir to disolve the yeast, let this sit about 10 minutes. Add 3 cups of flour and salt and beat until smooth. Gradually add the remaining flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Knead with a dough hook on a mixer or by hand until the dough is smooth and elastic. Oil a bowl and place the dough in bowl turning once to cover the dough in the oil. Cover the bowl with a dry towel and leave it to rise in a dry place for about two hours. When the dough has risen remove from the bowl and make 6 equal balls/baps shapes place these close together on a baking sheet that has been dusted with rice flour. Leave them to rise again for about another hour covered with a towel in a dry place. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

I have adapted the original recipe that I was given, the main thing is that for a home baker our ovens are not hot enough, so I heat mine (electric) to 425 and I fill a metal dish with water which I place on the bottom rack while the oven is heating to create a wee bit of steam which produces a nice crust. It takes patience to make a good bap at home, the first ones I made were like bricks, but if you have the time and use the right ingredients especially the bread flour hopefully you will do well.

Good luck

Sheila A :)
