Irish Barm Brack Recipe

 

Ingredients

2 c diced mixed dry fruits (raisins, currants, golden raisins, diced apricots, cherries, etc.)

1 c plus 2 TBS packed brown sugar

2 c cold, strong black tea

2-1/2 c self-rising flour

1 egg, lightly beaten

Butter

 

Directions

The night before baking, put dried fruit in a large bowl.  Sprinkle with brown sugar.  Add tea.  Cover and let soak overnight.  To bake bread, preheat oven to 350F.  Generously grease a 9”x5” loaf pan.  Sift flour into medium-size bowl. Mix egg into dried fruit.  Stir in flour just until well blended.  Spoon into loaf pan and smooth top.  Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.  Serve warm or cold, cut in slices and spread with butter.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.
