Bara brith is a traditional welsh tea bread flavored with tea, dried fruits and spices.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Soak the fruit overnight in the tea.
  3. The next day, preheat the oven to 325 F/170 C/Gas 3 and grease a 2-pound (900-gram) loaf tin. To the soaked fruit, add the marmalade, egg, brown sugar, spice, and flour and mix well.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until the center is cooked through (a cake tester comes out clean). Check from time to time to see that the top doesn't brown too much, and cover with a sheet of foil if necessary.
  5. Remove from the oven and leave the Bara Brith to stand for 5 minutes, then turn out of the tin and place on a cooling rack. Brush the honey over the top to glaze.
  6. Slice and enjoy.
