Bara Brith Cake

Bara Brith Cake 

357g mixed dried fruit
75g brown sugar
300ml strong hot tea ( I used 100mls of sherry and 200mls of tea)
250g self-raising flour
1 egg , beaten

Soak the dried fruit in the tea for as long as you like minimum overnight . Add egg, brown sugar and flour (flour add spoon at a time) while beating so its smooth as can be. 

Cook in large loaf tin at 150c for about 1 1/2 hour. until the skewer comes out clean.

TEA- I used Earl Grey tea but you can use any type . English breakfast or chai tea. 

Have also added nuts,  My favorite is Walnuts.

This cake is not sweet at all. with the 75g of brown sugar and the sugar from the fruit. I Love this cake with a cup of coffee after dinner . Its also lovely with a spread of butter. 

My Husband  came home with the recipe from work as one of his work mates made this and he loved this cake. He made the first one and got me hooked. So I thought I would share this cake recipe with you all.
