Welsh Cake Recipe

Welsh cake provides all the usual dilemmas associated with cooking or more accurately baking. Is it a bit sweet? Perhaps too dry? or the pointless arguements over what is the "true" fruit that it shoudl be made with currant or sultana. This is one recipe. I am, sure you will find many.

Welsh Cake Recipe

3 oz currants
3 oz white self-raising flour
1 teaspoon of mixed spices
1 large egg
5 oz Wholemeal self-raising flour
3 oz caster sugar
4 oz butter

Method: Mix both flours with the mixed spices. Then rub the butter and the sugar together into the flour mixture. Then mix in the currants and egg until it's a light dough. Roll the dough half an inch thick, then cut with a 2" diameter round cutter. Fry four minutes each side on an oiled griddle over a slow heat.

Some will, before serving, sprinkle with white sugar, but that is a matter of taste. Best eaten straight away.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
