Bara Brith
The Famous Fruit Bread of Wales
300 gms(10 oz.) mixed dried fruit
2/3 pint hot tea
90 gms (3 oz.) soft brown sugar
375 gms (12 oz.) self-raising wholemeal flour
1 tsp. mixed spice
1 large egg


Soak the dried fruit in the hot tea and leave overnight.

Next day, set oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a loaf tin.

Strain liquid from fruit and reserve liquid.

Mix fruit with dry ingredients in bowl, adding liquid until mixture is a soft dropping consistency. Pour into tin.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes until risen and firm to the touch.

Serve sliced and buttered.

This is almost the same as the Irish Barm Brack. There is another Welsh version which uses shortening and yeast but this one is easier and is often used.
