Sykes Cottages Favourite Welsh Recipes

In honour of St David’s day on Saturday, and this week being Wales Tourism Week 2014, we are celebrating all things Welsh with a week full of Wales-inspired blog posts. We thought that we’d start off by tickling the taste buds and featuring some Welsh recipes; Wales has inspired many a tasty dish of food from Welsh Cakes and Bira Brith to Cawl and Welsh rarebit and today we’re sharing a few of our favourites!

Bara Brith

Ingredients

  • 300g Mixed Fruit
  • 200g Light Muscovado Sugar
  • The zest of one orange
  • 250ml Hot black tea
  • 350g Self-raising flour
  • 2 Table spoon of mixed spice
  • 1 Beaten large egg
  • 50g Butter, plus a little extra to grease and serve

Instructions

  1. Put the fruit, sugar and orange zest into a bowl. Pour in the tea then stir everything together and leave to one side to soak over night.
  2. The next day, heat the oven to gas mark 3 (160C) then grease and line the base and sides of a 900g loaf tin with baking parchment.
  3. Put the flour and spice into a bowl then beat in the soaked fruit and liquid mixture. Add the egg, then the butter and beat until you have a stiff batter then pour into the loaf tin.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, covering with baking parchment if the top starts to look too dark. Use a skewer to check if it is cooked, if the skewer doesn’t come out clean then give it another 10 or so minutes in the oven.
  5. Leave to cool then serve sliced. We think it is best enjoyed with a slathering of butter and a cup of tea.
