  • About

Bara brith is Welsh for “speckled bread”, and as with so many recipes from around the world, there are probably nearly as many versions as there are towns and villages or even families in its homeland. Wayne has eschewed the baker’s yeast often used and says that “the sourdough provides a subtle flavour, which works to complement the other ingredients”. He adds, “packed with fruit and lightly spiced, this iconic Welsh tea loaf is best served with delicious real butter”.
