1 Lb. of flour
6 oz Sugar.
1 lb. of mixed dried fruit
1 tspn. of Baking Powder
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon of All-Spice or mixed spice
A pot of hot Irish tea


Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

The trick to making a Barm Brack is soaking the fruit over night in the tea. While this makes the dried fruit softer and more appealing in general, one must be careful when mixing the dough not to over knead or the rehydrated fruit will break up and speckle the cake. Add the sugar and egg to the fruit mix the next day. Sift in the remaining dry ingredients.Mix gently. Use a 7" round baking tin and bake for 80 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve with hot tea.
