  • butter
  • lard
  • currants
  • eggs
  • milk

Bara Brith

This rich fruit loaf flavoured with tea is usually served with butter and is the perfect treat the warm you up in the drizzly Welsh weather. Check out our loaf tins to bake one in.

  • tea
  • self-raising flour

Decorations / Addurniadau

Check out our Welsh balloon featuring ‘Y Ddraig Goch’ if you are feeling really patriotic. Perfect for filling with helium so the dragon will really be flying!
