Mae’n syniad ardderchog. - It is a great idea

Bara Brith (speckled bread) There are two types - without yeast it is a rich fruit cake, with yeast it is bread.

I didn’t know that. I’ll have to try it with yeast next time. Does it make it much lighter, I tend to like things fairly heavy and my Bara Brith is quite light anyway

Cooking, you say? Here’s a Dyl Mei classic.

One could argue that that would be even better with Beef and Tomato flavour… :ramen:

I didn’t know that either. I love the rich fruit cake variety, and could eat it all day, but have to avoid anything like that.

One could argue, if one was unconcerned with being irredeemably wrong. :wink:


I think we possibly have to accept irredeemably wrong as a permanent state, given we have just witnessed a pot noodle in a sandwich.
Anyone who can say that in Welsh gets 10p off me.


Oh my. Truly astonishing. I think I have to agree with @cat-1 - irredeemably wrong :joy:

I have yet to try making bara brith, which is the only way I’ll be able to try it here. I have had great success making Welsh cakes. But I can’t do that very often or I’ll get fat :slight_smile:


efo tebot o de

I soak my fruit in Earl Grey tea - it gives a lovely aroma/flavour to the loaf. :smile:


Talking of cooking and Welsh -
Two of my friends (Rob and Sian) will be the Welsh contingent on the new cooking programme this evening I think More 4 channel? around 16:30. I can’t promise that they will be allowed to speak Welsh, but they won’t be far off it speaking English :slight_smile:
