No Fat Tea Bread – Bara Brith

My mum made this the other day – it is really delicious.

350g mixed dried fruit (raisins, sultanas, dried apricot, mango, mixed peel whatever you have)

140g light muscovado sugar

300ml hot black tea

300g self raising (all purpose) flour

1 egg

Put all the mixed fruit and sugar in a mixing bowl and stir in the hot tea.

Cover and leave for 24 hours.

Next day: Heat oven to /150c/300 f/gas mark 2

Grease and line a large loaf tin with baking parchment.

Beat the egg and stir it and the flour into the fruit and tea.

Pour into tin and bake for 90 – 100 mins.  It is ready when it is well risen.(If you put a skewer into the centre it will come out clean.)

Allow to cool slightly then remove from the pan and cool on a rack.

    Hi Pat. I grew up on this in Wales where it’s called Bara Brith. I love it and had forgotten how to make it so please thank you your mum for me! Lx

    Thank you, Lorraine! I’ve edited the title – that’s a much catchier name for it. Px
