Bara Brith

A traditional tea time fruit bread, delicious served warm or cold spread with local Welsh butter. Some recipes are made with yeast, and all vary a little as family recipes are handed down through the generations.

  • 300ml (1/2) pint strong black tea
  • 250g (8oz) demerara sugar
  • 10ml (2 level tsp) mixed spice
  • 450g (1lb) self-raising flour
  • 1 large egg

Method:

  1. In a large bowl soak the fruit and sugar in strained tea and leave overnight.
  2. Next day preheat the oven to 170C, fan oven 150C or gas mark 3.
  3. Grease a 2lb loaf tin or line with buttered paper.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients into the fruit mixture and beat until well combined
  5. Pour the mixture into loaf tin.
  6. Place the tin in the oven and bake for one and a half hours.
  7. A skewer inserted into the loaf should come out clean.
  8. If the top of the Bara Brith browns too quickly, cover the top loosely with tin foil.
