Bara Brith For St David's Day

Today is St David’s Day, the perfect time to have a go at making Welsh favourite Bara Brith.

The name means ’speckled bread’ as this is a moist, slightly spicy tea bread speckled with dried fruit. The rich flavour comes from soaking the fruit overnight in strong tea plus a little ground cinnamon and grated nutmeg. Although Bara Brith is made with yeast bread dough by commercial bakers, this is a simple soak and stir recipe ideal for home bakers. Delicious served thickly sliced and spread with butter at tea time - the flavour deepens if wrapped and left for a day before slicing.
