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.
