About this recipe: A delicious tea bread, also known as barmbrack, nice straight from the oven and buttered. For an egg-free option, it works fine with a tablespoon of apple sauce instead of the egg.
Fab recipe! Lovely flavour and couldn't be easier to make. Going to try soaking the fruit in ginger tea. - 06 Mar 2017
I agree with the recipe poster, this is delicious and it's easy to put together. I followed the directions exactly except instead of putting the batter all in one pan, I made 4 small loaves. Probably took about 40 minutes to bake. For my 2 c dried fruit, I used a combination of currants, raisins and dried cranberries. Best served thickly slathered with butter and a cup of tea. Mmm Mm good. Suggestion: really grease well the bottom of the pan. Barmbrack is an old Irish recipe, usually made with yeast as the rising agent, but I like this version because it's so quick to put together. - 02 Apr 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
