This is not the traditional recipe for bara brith, meaning ‘speckled bread’ as the original recipe was based on an yeasted bread. However this version which is widely served, makes a beautifully moist cake as the dried fruit are soaked overnig
Mamgu means grandma in Welsh. The recipe (if i'm at all truthful) doesnt belong to my mamgu but a family friends nan! Bara brith means speckled bread. I love this cake spread with butter and a good cup of tea.
