About this recipe: This recipe has been given to me by my mother-in-law, who comes from the Welsh Valleys, who says it is the same recipe as used by her Grandmother. Just amended the ingredients to show metric.
You could substitute the cream for 25g of butter and rub this into the flour before adding the remaining ingredients. Then just add a little milk if needed to make a soft dough.
1 egg and 2-3 spoons of cream ? This was no where near enough liquid to bind the dry ingredients together which makes me think if there is an error in the recipe - 02 Dec 2015
