A version of the Irish Tea Brack recipe was given to me by my mother in law. This is my first time baking a Tea Brack. I’m not a big fan but my husband loves it so I wanted to learn how to make it for him. I made a few changes while I was making it which I regret but it was still edible and tasty but hubby said it was nothing like the one his mam used to make. (Sad me). I know I used spices and method I shouldn’t be using so I better share my mother in laws recipe for everybody sake!
