Tea brack — a.k.a. Irish Freckle Bread — is a moist, close-grained, packed-with-fruit breakfast bread. Based on Ireland's classic yeasted barm brack, this quicker version is just as popular in that country, where its only sweetness comes from the raisins and sultanas it's packed with. Our Americanized version adds brown sugar plus additional fruit (prunes and dates). Like the original Irish tea brack, though, the fruit is soaked in brewed tea, which is the bread's only liquid. If desired, substitute 2 tablespoons Irish whiskey for an equal amount of the tea.
