My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1This is Wales' traditional rich fruit bread.
- 2South Wales makes it with baking powder; Northerners prefer yeast as the raising agent. Either way it's delicious.
- 3Soak the dried fruit and sugar overnight in the tea.
- 4You can use either fresh tea, or the cold dregs from the teapot (this gives a good strong colour). Next day, sieve the flour and fold it it into the fruit. Mix in the lightly beaten egg.
- 5Line a small loaf-tin with buttered paper then tip in the mixture, smoothing it well into the corners.
- 6Bake in a gentle oven at 300 F (150 C) for 1-1/2 hours.
- 7Cool and store for at least 2 days in a tin so that it matures moist and rich.
- 8Traditionalists say you should never butter the Bara Brith, but it's lovely that way!
