We’re a nation of bakers and baking is a great activity to enjoy and delight in the yummy rewards. Here is a special recipe for a fruit cake, with Welsh provenance, which will add something different to your afternoon tea or picnic in the garden.
The name Bara Brith translates into ‘speckled bread’ as it was traditionally a yeasted bread which is filled with dried fruit which has been soaked in tea overnight. This recipe is a modern take which omits the yeast and produces a moist, moreish fruit cake with the delightful tea twist.
Serves 8-10 slices | Prep 15 minutes | Cook 1 hour
Make this recipe a couple of days in advance of eating as the flavours will develop. Delicious served the traditional way just with salted butter, it is also enjoyable with jam and/or cheese as a twist.
