Suzanne's Fair Trade Bara Brith Recipe

You might remember a little while ago, us asking you to send your fair trade recipes in to us. Well, we asked and you delivered – and we plan to share a selection of our favourite recipes over the coming months.

This traditionally Welsh recipe has been kindly supplied by Suzanne Fletcher, who tells us that it goes down extremely well when served sliced, with or without butter, and that it freezes well if you want to save some for later!


450g fair trade sultanas
350ml fair trade orange or apple juice or black tea (depending on preference)
450g whole wheat flour
2 heaped teaspoons of mixed spice
2 eggs (locally sourced if possible)
Milk to mix (locally sourced if possible)
2 heaped teaspoons baking powder


  1. Soak the sultanas in the fruit juice/tea at least overnight.

  1. Mix sultanas, apple/orange juice or black tea, milk, whole wheat flour, mixed spice, eggs and baking powder all together until a sloppy consistency.
  2. Put into 2 large loaf tins (with liners if you have them)

  1. Bake for 1 – 1 and 1/2 hours at 160°C.
