Welsh tea cakes

Similiar to pancakes but thicker - these are simply delicious eaten warm, with butter and jam.

Good moist recipe but I added a teaspoon of mixed spice for extra flavour.

My grandfather was Welsh and I can remember my grandmother making Welsh cookies when I was a small child. I was so thrilled to see this recipe on the site and decided to give it a whirl after talking to a coworker from the UK who said he had not had the cookies since he was a kid either. My 3 year-old daughter helped me make the cookies and we both had a blast! Instead of currants (I couldn't find any at my local grocery store) we used dates because I don't particularly care for raisins. They tasted wonderful and came out looking great! My coworker from the UK said that they were excellent - just like the ones his Welsh "Nam" used to make. My boss loved them so much I swear he ate half the batch. Will definitely make again! Thanks!

i love these, they remind me of scones. I mix spices(cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg) with the flour. Also i rolol the dough into balls and squash them on the pan. great recipe!

These are so good........ I used all butter and raisins. I also added 1/2 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg along with a tsp. of vanilla. I have to admit I burnt the first batch and then adjusted the temperature of my pan accordingly. I sprinkled them with sugar and froze half the batch. Yet another breakfast treat for my husband to enjoy with his coffe at work!

I inherited my grandmother's recipe and it is different than this, we use all butter, no shortening and raisins instead of currents, and lots of nutmeg (2 tblspns), also we don't sprinkle sugar on top. It is great with coffee or tea and isn't very sweet

"Cakes" not cookies.. The welsh regard cookies as an American sweet biscuit kinda like the normal chocolate chip cookie. You can like this recipe decorate it with sugar or spread a thin layer of butter to give it a little moisture. Ideally eaten with a nice cup of tea or as a chocolate bar alternative in a lunch box. The best way to cook the cakes are on an old cast iron pan where it has a used natural coating.

This almost the exact replica of my husband's Welsh great-grandmother's recipe. I use 1/2 Crisco and 1/2 unsalted butter. This is the one Christmas cookie that I always have to make. Great with a cup of tea!
