They are a traditional, delicious, moreish and easy welsh treat, and take my advice always make more than you think you'l need, as these get eaten fast!
This recipe will make about 20 but thats only enough if its just you eating them, they are too tasty just to eat one.
Overall it will take you about 20 minutes to make, and its very easy.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 225g / 8oz - self raising flour
- 80g / 3oz - sugar (any type, i used demerara, gives them that browner caramel colour)
- - handful of sultanas
- 1 - beaten egg
- 110g / 4oz - salted butter (welsh if you can)
- - sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg
- - Milk if needed
Step 2: Method - Making the dough
cut the butter up into small peices and mix it into the dried mixture until it becomes crumbly, then beat an egg and add with the sultana's mixing until you form a dough, if it seems a bit dry add a bit of milk.
start heating the griddle or frying pan on a medium heat, and melt a bit of butter on it.
Step 3: Frying them
Cook them for about 3 minutes each side, until they are golden brown.
Step 4: Now eat your finnished Welsh cakes
These guys are basically a cross between a scone and a pan cake, and in my opinion are better than both, These can be enjoyed hot or cold, but enjoy them quick as they disappear fast, i made this batch and within 2 hours one was left.
Thanks for looking, and hope you enjoy making them, and I know you'l enjoy eating them.
