Barm Brack Recipe



  • 1 3/4 cups brewed black tea, cold ( I used Earl Grey)
  • 1 cup  sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups raisins
  • 1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. allspice


1. Grease a loaf pan.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3.Put the tea and raisins  into a bowl, cover and leave to soak overnight. The next morning the raisins will be very plump and moist.

4. Mix  the flour,  sugar and allspice into the bowl with the tea and raisins.

5.  Mix in the beaten egg and pour into a loaf pan.

6. If you would like to add charms place them in wax paper and add to the batter.

7. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, approximately 1 hour. Each time I bake this the baking time tends to vary so please keep an eye on the bread. It usually needs a little more time not less.
