Bara Brith translates to ‘speckled bread’ (in Welsh) and is a rich fruit loaf made with tea. Produced all over Wales the spiced fruit loaf is delicious when spread with salted Welsh butter. It can be either a yeast bread enriched with dried fruit (similar to the Irish barmbrack) or something more like a fruitcake made with self-raising flour (no yeast). It is traditionally made with raisins, currants and candied peel.
Quintessentially British. Lots of things to add to this... 'Talking about the weather', 'wicked humour', 'sherry and mince pies at Christmas', 'builder's tea', 'council house trifle' ..... the list goes on #KMSCalifornia
