Welsh Cakes

What's The Big Idea?

Traditional tea-time snacks. We prefer to think of them as "perfect half-time snacks"!

NB: You do need a baking stone or traditional iron griddle to cook them.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 8oz plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 4oz butter
  • 3oz caster sugar
  • 2oz currants
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • A little milk

What To Do

  • Sift the flour, baking powder and mixed spice together into a mixing bowl
  • Cut up the butter and rub it into the flour. Add the sugar, currants and the egg and mix to form a dough; add a little milk if needed
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 6-7mm. Use a pastry cutter to cut out rounds
  • Grease a bakestone or a heavy iron griddle with a little butter. Place directly onto the heat and allow it to heat up
  • Cook the Welsh cakes on the griddle for about 3 minutes on each side, turning once. They should be light-mid brown in colour once cooked
  • Remove from the griddle/bakestone and sprinkle with caster sugar
