How to make welsh cakes


This recipe makes 2 batches. To make 1 batch, half the amount of each ingredient.

Sift the flour into a bowl. Rub the flour and butter together.

It should resemble breadcrumbs.

Add the sugar and raisins, mix!

Add the eggs.

I mix it from the middle outwards, so it doesn't become lumpy.

When it gets to this stage I start bringing it together with my hands.

If your mix is too dry you can add a little milk.

You should end up with a ball of dough.

Roll the dough out to about 5mm (1/4 in) thick on a floured surface.

Cut out the cakes using a cookie cutter.

I made some heart shaped ones too :)

Put a little oil in a frying pan. Cook the cakes in the pan over a low heat for 2-3 mins each side.

After 2-3 flip the cakes, they should be golden brown.

Dust the cakes with sugar while they are still warm. Enjoy!
