Bara Brith is a traditional welsh teabread. In Welsh 'Bara Brith' means speckled bread.
Measure the currants, sultanas and sugar into a bowl. Pour over the hot tea, cover and leave overnight.
Pre-heat the oven to 150c/300f/gas mark 2.
Lightly Grease and base line a 2lb/900g loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
Stir the flour and egg into the fruit mixture, mix thoroughly then turn into the tin and level the surface.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 90- 105 mins or until well risen and firm to the touch. A skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean. Allow to cool in the tin for about 10min before turning out leaving to cool completely on a wire rack.
