How to Make The Best Irish Tea Brack Ever!


  1. Put the fruit and the sugar in a bowl, add the hot tea, stir it and leave to soak overnight.
  2. Preheat oven - 160 deg, C/325 deg F. I usually use a round cake tin, but whatever you have will do and I line it with grease-proof paper so that it doesn't stick.
  3. Sift the flour, spices and baking powder together. Add some to the fruit mix, then a little egg, then some flour, etc finishing with the flour. Beat it well after each addition.
  4. Pour the mix into the tin, smooth the top and bake for about 1 1/2 hours, until a knife or toothpick inserted comes out dry. Let it cool for a while in the tin, then turn it onto a rack.
