Ginger Brack Recipe

On a recent visit to Whitby we enjoyed a local bakery's delicacy - "Ginger Brack".  Trawled the internet for Brack recipes, and there are several, but nothing including ginger.  Does anyone have any recipes or idea what kind/how much ginger to put into the mix?

Re: Ginger Brack Recipe

Ginger Brack looks like a ginger fruit loaf...you could try modifying a fruit loaf recipe and adding an inch or two of fine hacked fresh ginger or two tsps of powder...
The closest I have is a Ginger Ba Ba. But it doesn't have any fruit in it...
Australian recipe, my sister sent it to me. Sensational if you like ginger smile

Re: Ginger Brack Recipe

I have three cake recipes that use ginger. One says 1 tsp per 2 cups of flour, another says 3 tsp per 2 cups of flour and the third wants 3 tsp  per one cup of flour! So there is a wide variation. That is ground ginger. I think in yeast cookery I would add more rather than less. I have substituted finely grated fresh ginger for ground dried ginger with very good effect! Just as Mr Spice says.
If I was making a fruit bread/cake I would consider adding chopped crystalised ginger with or instead of the other fruit and in the same quantities. That, plus some ground or grated ginger in the mix would be very nice.
Please keep practicing until you perfect it and then give us the recipe! thumbsup
Good luck!

Re: Ginger Brack Recipe

barm brack..Irish
bara brith....Welsh
selkirk bannock...scottish
All have similarities, some recipes use yeast to make a fruity bread.
Others soak the fruit in cold tea, nice sliced with butter.( tea loaf)
Add more ginger instead of mixed spice for a gingery version.
Many recipes out there you could adapt wink

Re: Ginger Brack Recipe

An elderley lady used to make me authentic barm brack,soaked the fruit in tea, easy to put ginger in  I would think, personally I would use preserved stem ginger but am sure powdered ginger would be fine. thumbsup
