Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

This traditional Irish tea brack is a great way of using up all those dried fruits that get leftover after the Christmas baking. The brack will last for up to 2 weeks.

makes 1 loaf

  • 2 1/2 cups mixed dried fruit (raisins, golden raisins, and currants)
  • 1 1/4 cups cold tea
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

ImagePlace the dried fruit in a bowl and cover with the cold tea. Leave to soak overnight. Next day, place the sugar and egg in a bowl. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice and mix all the ingredients together. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Pour the soaked fruits and any remaining tea into the bowl and mix together well. Pour into a greased 2 1/4lb loaf pan and bake in the oven for 1 hour. Let cool on a wire rack.
