Cooking With Carlee: Irish Tea Brack #StPatricksDay

Cooking With Carlee : Irish Tea Brack.

 Top ‘o the morning to you!  Now that it is March, it seems like a few Irish recipes are in order.  I think everyone has a favorite way of doing corned beef and cabbage, so I didn’t want to go right there.  I always love trying something a little bit different and fun. So, this brack seemed like a wonderful option.  If you haven’t heard of tea brack before, you are not alone.  You should certainly get familiar though!

   A brack is a fruit filled breakfast cake that goes great with a hot mug of tea or coffee.  It looks like it might be too sweet, but it really isn’t.  it has a texture similar to a quick bread, but doesn’t have any of the butter or oil.  The flavor reminds me of a bowl of raisin bran in cake form.  It kind of makes me want to eat it with milk and a spoon!


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
