I’m loving this recipe! Very easy with delicious results.
Like many others I at least doubled the spices and added ground ginger.
The first time I made it I used dried fruit I had on hand: raisins, cranberries and currants.
Now I’m off to the races. The latest batch I’m calling “Tropical Bara Brith” and have used a few currants, orange cranberries, pineapple and, wait for it, about 1/4 cup of dark Hawaiian rum. I also put on an apricot glaze when they came out of the oven. I also cut down on the sugar since they were a little sweet.
I also baked these in mini loaf pans so I can give as gifts. They took about 40-45 minutes to bake. I do think the baking time in the directions is way to long.
I bought a lot of different dried fruit so will keep going.
My tiny Welsh Nana wasn’t much of a baker, but she would have loved these.
