Clean Bara brith (fruit loaf)

Bara Brith is a delicious welsh fruit cake/loaf that my family have always made. It’s probably impossible to mess up, especially with this recipe; bowl, six ingredients, mix.

  • 500g currants or sultanas
  • 300ml tea
  • 400g almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3tsp chia seeds
  • 1 x egg, beaten
Pop the fruit into a big bowl with the chia seeds.
Pour the tea over and soak overnight
Pre heat oven to 170 degrees
The next day, add the flour, baking powder and beaten egg.
The mixture needs to be slightly wet and not runny. Add more tea if needed in small amounts (the chia seeds might have soaked up the tea…)
Pour into a baking sheet lined loaf tin.
Bake in oven for 60 mins – though check that a skewer comes out clear first.
If it doesn’t, keep cooking for 10 mins at a time.
Enjoy, guilt free!
