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.
