Sibyl's biscuit tin - Bara brith

Bara brith is a traditional welsh fruit loaf and although you may not recognise the name you may well know the loa if you try it. It's a heavy fruit loaf made with dried fruit soaked overnight in strong tea. I have fond memories of my grandmother making a very similar recipe.

 I tried this recipe here and found it had a delicious favour, especially warm with a spread of butter. It was a surprisingly thick dough and i had to mix it by hand before putting in the loaf tin. Also i wouldn't cook it for so long next time as it came out a bit dry. I'd start checking it at about 1 1/4 hrs.

Hope everyone is having a great week, i'm off to start my christmas preparations.
