One Perfect Bite: Beginner's Whole Wheat Batter Bread - As homemade bread is one of my favorites, i just had to give this recipe a try. It was an easy recipe and required no kneading. The results . . . a little bit "wheaty" but tastey loaf. Will be making again. Nice to have an easy recipe in my file.
This traditional Irish sweet bread is known as barmbrack, or bairin breac in Gaelic, or speckled loaf, since it is run through with raisins This is a perfect bread for breakfast or tea, spread with good butter, toasted or not The recipe has been adapted slightly from one by the well-known Irish cookbook author Rachel Allen; her original calls for chopped candied peel instead of citrus zest, and fast-rising yeast instead of dry active yeast.
