Barm Brack

While this might sound like a recipe the current US president might enjoy, it's actually a traditional, yummy tea-bread.

We used to buy this during my childhood camping holidays to wales and Mum picked up a novelty postcard with this recipe on to recreate it... all these years later it's still a favourite!

You will need -
3/4 pint of cold tea
6oz soft brown sugar
12oz mixed dried fruit
12oz self raising flour
1 free range egg

Put the fruit and the sugar in a bowl and pour over 3/4 of a pink of cold tea (no milk!!). Cover and leave to soak overnight.

Beat the egg and add to the fruit mixture along with the flour. Mix well.

Bake in a 2lb loaf mould (mine's silicone!) at 180C for 1hr 45mins

Serve thinly sliced and buttered!
