This loaf is better if left to mature. Wrap it up well and forget it is there for about two days. I like it plain but my Mum serves hers buttered.

Do you use brown sugar or is that redundant given the treacle?

You can't beat a good Bara Brith.
That looks very similar to my Mum's recipe.

Last time we spoke, she'd just made two and was making another two for the Doctor's surgery - one for her Dr and one for the receptionists! Smile

Someone had made one at a village hall do we went to last weekend (we know how to Rock in North Devon) and Ben was very keen, so I said I'd make one this weekend.

The overnight soak in tea is what makes it a real Bara Brith

She also makes a version with marzipan in the middle.
