how to make Welsh cakes...

Years of holidays in wales have given me a great fondness for Welsh cakes, a delicious scone type cake, easy to make and best eaten warm straight off the griddle!


250g plain flour
125g butter
75g caster sugar
50g currants
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp mixed spice
1 egg
pinch of salt
a little milk to bind


1. Sift the dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder & mixed spice) in a mixing bowl
2. Cut up the butter and rub into the flour
3. Stir in the sugar and fruit, then pour in the egg to make a dough, use a little milk if the mixture is too dry
4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about the thickness of a biscuit and use a pastry cutter to cut out rounds
5. Cook the cakes on a griddle or heavy bottomed pan, over a low heat, until they turn golden
6. Once cooked sprinkle with caster sugar and serve
