… OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. Yesterday morning, I woke up craving welsh cakes. With a lot of my family being welsh, I spent a big part of growing up, scoffing my face, on a field in the middle of South Wales, or at the time, what felt like in the middle of nowhere. I AM IN LOVE WITH HOW EASY WELSH CAKES ARE TO MAKE. So I thought I’d share the recipe with you all.
YOU’LL NEED –
220g plain flour
4oz caster sugar + some to sprinkle
1 large egg
1 pinch of Salt
splash of Milk.
THE HOW –
2. Add the sugar, salt and currants and mix together.
3. Mix in the egg and dash of milk and combine the mixture. You want to be able to make a ball of dough that isn’t too sticky, but if you need to add a little more milk to combine the mixture, then do so.
4. Sprinkle your side/board with flour and roll out your ball of mixture. I usually make around 15 cakes. You then want to cut out circles that are around 1 cm thick – too thick, and the outsides will burn before the inside cooks.
5. Welsh Cakes are traditionally cooked on a hot plate but can be cooked on a flat griddle or large frying pan if you don’t have one of these at home. Lightly grease the plate/pan and cook your cakes in batches, for about 3 minutes each side or until golden.
Once cooked, cover them in caster sugar and serve with a spread of butter and a cup of tea. My absolute faaaav and can stay fresh in a cake tin for up to a week. Literally takes 10 minutes and is such a beaut tea time treat. I love all things welsh, but I do love a good cake.
Let me know if you give them a go!
ps. they probably don’t actually keep the doctor away. Eat Responsibly.
