Irish Tea Brack (Tea-Soaked Raisin Bread)

[Photograph: Carrie Vasios]

This traditional Irish bread is characterized by first soaking raisins in tea overnight. However soaking is the only time consuming part—the rest is about as easy a dump-and-stir bread as you can get. It's typically served buttered, but it's just good plain, or with a bit of jam.
