    ChanaHolt's Note:

    Traditional Irish tea bread served around Halloween once used to foretell marriage by baking a ring in the loaf and waiting for someone to get it. Whoever gets it is supposed to be the next to marry. I only make it once a year around Halloween and I have family members that ask for a second mini loaf to freeze for later in the year. Never gave the recipe out until now. I like it with coffee or tea in the morning very sweet and heavy.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      First soak the raisins and sugar in the tea (or tea and whiskey) overnight.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
    3. 3
      Add Flour, baking powder, and eggs to the tea mixture.
    4. 4
      Spoon the dough into a greased loaf pans. You should be able to fill 3 loaf pans, 8x4 inches (20x10 cm). (I prefer to make them in ready to give away little loaf pans which makes about five per batch).
    5. 5
      Place loaf pans in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 45minutes.
    6. 6
      Leave Bram Brack to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack and glaze the top with the melted honey. ( If you go with the small give away kind let cool then leave in tin drizzle honey on the top and cover with a little room on top and then give them away when ready.).
