While giving a presentation for her charity Fight the Lady Killers in Washington DC last week, the American songstress dished about her love of soda bread to the Irish Ambassador for the US Anne Anderson.

The Way We Were singer was thrilled the following day when Anne brought her a gift of a loaf she baked herself over night.

“When I was in Washington, D.C. last week, I told the Irish Ambassador that I loved Irish soda bread. To my delight, she went home and brought back a fresh baked loaf. It was yummy,” Barbra said in a post on her Instagram account.

The singer was in Washington to ask Congress for more funding for to support America’s heart disease epidemic and Barbra was representing the charity she co-founded Fight the Lady Killer.

Meanwhile, Barbra recently came under fire after her dog bit a flight attendant on a private trip from New York to Washington DC.

The attendant needed stitches after the bite from the 12-year-old Coton de Tulear.

"This never happened before," a rep for Barbra explained to People.

"The dog has never had this kind of behaviour."

"She's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen. She's like the daughter I never had," the singer gushed to London's Independent.

"She speaks English. She understands English I swear to God. She'll come up to me and go ‘mmm'—it sounds like a baby. That means she wants water. Or she'll just look at me with those eyes and then she wants a treat. She always comes with us. I would never leave her."
