Fruit Loaf

Cake 16 – Barmbrack (Ireland)


Two Irish cakes in a row!  Admittedly, I also made this cake because it’s quick (I’m studying but I need a baking break!).  And who can go wrong with fruit loaf, where the fruit has been soaked overnight in tea?  Yum yum!


The tea in this really helps to avoid ending up with a dry loaf.  I don’t normally eat fruit loaf (there’s usually other, prettier cakes to choose from), but this is really nice – especially with butter and a nice cup of tea!!  (The more tea, the better!)
