  • About

This loaf does everything a fruit loaf should do. Great for toast in the morning, terrific as a cheese and wine accompaniment and like the hazelnut and raisin loaf it is very yummy as the bread component of a bread and butter pudding. A barberry is a sour berry from Iran similar to a cranberry and packed full of sour-sweet flavours. Barberries are available from Middle Eastern food stores and specialist delicatessens.
