Welsh cakes - "picau ar y maen" in welsh translates roughly to griddle cakes, traditionally cooked on the hot plate of a coal oven but nowadays cooked on a griddle or even a non stick frying pan if you dont have a griddle.
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.
