Day 30

Welsh Cakes

We had a holiday in Wales a few years ago. Beaches, castles, mountains and museums. My daughter only really liked one of those. Anyway, when we got back home I tried a few Welsh recipes. Welsh cakes are delicious warm by themselves or with butter.


225g self raising flour

110g butter (diced)

85g caster sugar

Handful of sultanas

1 egg (beaten)

Milk, if needed


1. Rub the flour and butter together until they resemble breadcrumbs.

2. Add the sugar, sultanas and egg and mix together to form a ball of dough. If it's too dry then add a little milk.

3. Roll the dough out to a thickness of about 5mm.

4. Cut into rounds with a 7.5-10mm cutter.

5. Rub a griddle with some butter. If you don't have a griddle then a heavy-bottomed frying pan does the trick. Heat the griddle/frying pan

6. Cook the rounds a few at a time 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.

7. Remove from the griddle/frying pan and dust with caster sugar.
