This traditional Irish Tea Brack Loaf is filled with fruit and makes a great tea time treat. We're convinced it makes a great lunchbox treat too, not just one for St. Patrick's Day. The fruit requires soaking over night in tea.

Method

  1. Put the dried mixed fruit and cherries into a large bowl and pour over the hot tea and leave overnight.

  2. The next day, preheat the oven to 180C (fan 160C, gas mark 4) and line a 900g loaf tin with baking paper. Ready made liners for loaf tins are available in larger supermarkets.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the soaked fruit and tea and stir well.

  4. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer comes out clean when pushed into the middle. After an hour just check as you might want to cover with foil if browning too much.

  5. Leave to cool in the tin and then serve sliced with butter.

    The best tea brack recipe! I reduce the sugar by half as I find it too sweet with all the fruit.
