Welsh Cakes

These are a very traditional cake from Wales and are my family’s favourite things and so sometimes I’ll make up a batch especially for them. They really don’t take long to make and fill my kitchen with a delicious warm spicy aroma. And they taste so good!

Ingredients

12oz self raising flour

2tsp baking powder

6oz butter or margarine

2oz caster sugar

2tsp mixed spice

6oz raisins or sultanas

1 egg

2tbsp milk

Method

• Using a mixer (I love my KitchenAid 💕) mix the flour, baking powder and butter together until they look like breadcrumbs.

• Add sultanas, mixed spice and sugar.

• Add egg and milk and continue mixing to form a soft dough.

• Turn onto a floured surface, roll out to 1/4” thickness and cut into round discs.

• Over a low heat cook in a heavy based frying pan for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.

• Sprinkle with caster sugar and leave to cool on a rack.

I have to double up this recipe as they don’t last five minutes in our house! Literally as I’m cooking them they’re being swiped!

I hope you enjoy making these as much as I do ❤️
