Award winning Bara Brith baked at home by Mel.

SKU: BARA1. Category: . Tags: , , .

Product Description

The fabulous box (I love them) measures 245 x 125 x 90 mm.


Well, all good things come to those who wait! You know your Bara Brith needs a little time, the fruit soaked in hot tea…all day and all the night long…mixed and baked and cooled down…carefully wrapped and sent from our home to yours.

Have a look at this little chart to see when your Bara Brith will be with you by the very latest :

Monday- arrive Thurs/Friday
Tuesday- arrive Friday/ Saturday
Wed- Saturday/Monday
Thurs- Monday/Tues
Friday-  Tues/Wed
Saturday- Wed/Thursday

But don’t worry – they have a good shelf life (14 days) and as they journey closer to you all their fruity flavours and spicy goodness is settling and improving – ready to taste top-notch from the first slice to the last crumbs!

    My childhood memories of grannies fruit loaf came flooding back with the first bite of Mel’s Bara Brith. My God, this is the nicest thing I think I’ve ever eaten.

    The only way I can describe this Bara Brith, is addictive! Whilst working with Mel on the branding for this project I must have consumed about 10 whole 2lb loaves and I still could eat more. It’s no wonder my new company is called Two Fat Men!

    Just a test from Melanie to see how well the 5 star button is oiled up…

    This barabrith surpassed all my expections. The moistness of the fruit, the taste, the need to have another slice totally amazed me. Scrummy! Thank you bakedbymel

    Not being a native Welshman i’ve only been introduced to BaraBrith over the last few years and after trying a few different ones i finally found Mel’s. WOW once you taste it you won’t settle for anything else. But be warned, you won’t ever be able to have just one slice. Thank you Mel, i wish i could give this more than 5*’s.

    Simply the best Bara Brith ever. Stuck for a Valentines gift I ordered one for my hubby, and in his words ‘Best present ever’. No one else got a look in, the whole loaf was gone in no time. Birthdays, Christmas, special occasions now sorted. Definetly 5*.

    Purchased 6 Bara Brith to take for our Judges at The Welsh Kennel Club Championship Show and they did not last long!!!
    We had judges from all parts of globe and all, without exception, LOVED your Bara Brith. Our Russian judge could not get enough and wants mail order for Russia!
    A repeat double order for next year so keep going with
    “The Great Welsh Baking”.
    I will be coming for more soon.
    You have a special talent producing something so special.
