Similar 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. - 03 Mar 2014
They are just called Welsh cakes 👌 very good recipe though 😀 - 04 Jan 2014
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!
