Welsh Cakes

Perfect for teatime, welsh cakes are a favourite teatime treat, simple to make using basic ingredients. Delicious straight from the oven with creamy Welsh butter!

 Ingredients:

  • 225g/8oz self-raising flour, sieved
  • 110g/4oz (preferably Welsh) salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • handful of sultanas
  • milk, if needed
  • 85g/3oz caster sugar
  • pinch ground mixed spice (optional)
  • extra butter, for greasing

Method:

  1. Rub butter into sieved flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add sugar, dried fruit followed by the egg. Mix to combine, then form a ball of dough, using a little milk if needed.
  3. Roll out the pastry to about 5mm/¼in thick, then cut into rounds with a 7.5-10cm/3-4in fluted pastry/cookie cutter.
  4. Rub a griddle or heavy based frying pan with butter and wipe the excess away. Put it on to a direct heat and wait until it heats up.
  5. Place the Welsh cakes on the griddle, turning once for about 2-3 minutes each side. Each side needs to be caramel brown before turning.
  6. Remove from the pan and dust with caster sugar while still warm.
  7. Can be split and served with butter, and even local jam!
