A Caveat and Affiliates
First off, a little caveat: within my articles you will find affiliate links, meaning if you buy them, I get a small commission. Your cost is not affected. In addition, I am an Amazon Associate and I earn from qualifying purchases on Amazon.
And yes, if I say that I recommend a product here, it means I truly believe it is a good product. I refuse to recommend any product that I have not researched and believe to be a good value.
Even better, I provide you with a very clear picture of the product, it’s use, and the probable value.
Earning your trust is important to me. I run this website myself and the commissions and donations help support the site.
Sound reasonable and fair enough? Let’s continue to the article.
Irish Tea Brack
Irish Tea Brack is a moist, savory quick bread soaked in strong black tea with dried fruits. For a tasty breakfast or teatime treat, tea-soaked fruits are baked into a quick bread. This Irish tea brack is good for St. Patrick’s Day or any other occasion! A cross between a coffee cake and a quick sweet bread, this recipe is a lot of fun. It has a lot of dried fruits and whole grains in it. In cake form, it reminds me a little of Raisin Bran.
Best wishes for the day! It appears that a few Irish recipes are in order now that March has arrived. I didn’t want to go there because I believe everyone has a favorite way of making corned beef and cabbage. I’m always up for trying something new and interesting. As a result, this brack appeared to be an excellent choice. I’m telling you, it’s fantastic. It’s ideal for afternoon tea or a delicious breakfast.
This is the last recipe I’ve created to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day; I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes I’ve created to raise awareness. Today, I hope you relax with a cup of tea and a slice or two of brack.
