A Welsh, yeast leavened fruit bread used as a popular tea bread throughout Britain. Bara brith is a dense loaf that is usually prepared with white bread flour or occasionally whole-wheat flour. It is usually formed into a rounded shape. There are many variations of the basic recipe, but currants are included in all varieties. Some of the other ingredients often used in the bread are raisins, citrus zest, and spices. Many versions are glazed with honey, which provides a tasty crust. The Welsh words “bara brith” mean “bread speckled or spotted,” which is certainly true of the bread’s appearance. Bara brith is commonly found in bakeries and large food stores throughout Britain.
