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.
Here's the list of what you need:
What To Do
- 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
- 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
