Can’t bake cake

If you have no idea how to bake the Bara Brith Welsh teabread is what you need to make, it’s a delightfully easy cake that virtual is made without even thinking in two simple pre-cooking steps. 

I came across this easy recipe in Mary Berry 100 Cakes and Bakes I did adapt is very slightly using only sultanas and regular sugar. 

The ingredients I used were as follows:

2 cups sultanas
1 cup sugar
300ml strong tea
1¾ cups self raising flour
1 egg

Step 1.  Put the sultanas and sugar in a bowl add the hot tea (without adding the tea bag) cover and leave for a few hours.  (I left for over 5 hours). 

Step 2.  Add the flour and egg and mix thoroughly. 

Step 1 and 2 are all you have to do! 

Of course Step 3. Is putting the mixture into a lined and greased came tin and cooking for around 1½ hours at 150° or until risen and firm and the skewer congress out clean. 

Step 4.  When conferred remove from the oven allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tin and peeling away the grease proof paper and spring to cool on a wire rack. 

Naturally I had to try the cake as suggested sliced and buttered and it is amazing. 


The most easiest, tastiest cake I’ve made. 

Happy Saturday Friends!
