Barmbrack Recipe – Irish Tea Loaf

Have you ever had barmbrack before? It’s delicious and very easy to make.

Barmbrack is quite a heavy (in a good way), moist fruit loaf. You soak the fruit in the cake over night in tea, so the dried fruit becomes really dense.

This recipe is perfect for a Sunday if you are having guests round for tea.
