Irish Barmbrack tea cake is a traditional Halloween treat in Ireland. Dried fruit & spices make it extra delicious! Try my yeast-free version! —Julia

What You'll Need
  • 10.5 ounces Plain Flour
  • 10.1 ounces Cold Strong Tea
  • 8.8 ounces Raisins
  • 5.3 ounces Brown Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder

  2. Preheat the oven to 180C/356F.
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl including the raisins & tea (Note: some raisins may absorb more liquid than others so you might end needing to add more tea. To be ready, have some extra cold tea ready on hand).
  4. Line a loaf tin with baking paper and pour the mixture over.
  5. Transfer in the oven and bake for 1 hour or until baked throughout.
  6. Enjoy with butter and/or jam as well as a cup of your favorite tea/coffee!
