Excellent with snipped dried apricots, plums and cherries (or cherry & orange flavoured dried cranberries). DO be careful how much dried plum is used ... lovely flavour, but thats prunes!

I've been wanting to make bara brith for some time, but this is the first time I've gotten around to actually doing it. I just an organic black cherry tea that had steeped overnight and was nice and dark. For the fruits, I used raisins, prunes and apricots (I snipped the prunes/apricots into smaller bits to be approx the same size as the raisins). After my tea had steeped, some of the liquid (about a Tbs) had evaporated so I topped it off with a little cognac. Yum. Very dense and fruity bread. I acutally found it a tad dry. I think that it might benefit from the addition of some oil or even another egg. Or even slightly less flour, as I didn't feel this had the problem with being gummy that very low/no fat baked goods often have. Very tasty with tons of great flavor- the tea makes it taste very unique. Thanks!
