  1. There are many bakeries around Sligo, but, that does not prevent the people from baking bread. Most of the people like their own bread. The cakes baked by the people are boxty, potatoe-cake, pan-cakes.
    Boxty is made with raw potatoes and flour. Potatoes cakes are made with boiled potatoes. They are in triangular shapes. Pan-cakes are made with sweet milk and flour.
    There are other cakes baked. One is baked with Indian meal. It is very hard bread.
    Some people put the sign of the cross on the bread. It is said the bread bakes better when this is on it.
    The oven is the vessel generally used for baking bread.
