Bara Brith


Bara Brith

Bara Brith is Welsh for Currant Bread and is a traditional fruit cake from Wales. This recipe is pretty much fool proof and was given to me by a friend from the WI (so it must be good).

Soak 1lb mixed fruit and 6 ounces brown sugar in half a pint of warm tea overnight.

Stir in 1teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of marmalade, 1 beaten egg, 1 pound self raising flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder.

Divide into 2 well lined 1 pound loaf tins

Bake at 160 degrees for 50 minutes

This cake is fat free but you could butter if you wish! Put the kettle on and enjoy with a cup of tea!
