    Molly53's Note:

    Bara brith, sometimes known as "speckled bread" (the literal meaning of the original Welsh-language name), is a fruit bread which originated in Wales. It is traditionally made with raisins, Zante currants and candied peel. Bara Brith was brought to South America by the Welsh settlers who started arriving in 1865 and is known as torta negra (black cake) , becoming a traditional food item there. There are many different recipes for this bread, which is baked and sold commercially. It is best eaten as soon as possible. Posted from an online source in response to a recipe request.
