About this recipe: From the heart of rural mid-Wales come these traditional Welsh cakes. Eaten and enjoyed regularly throughout Wales, these traditional cakes, or a version thereof, have been kicking around for as long as anyone can remember. There is nothing fancy about a Welsh cake, and yet they seem to encompass all that one could ever want in a satisfying mouthful; sweet yet slightly salty, moist yet crumbly, light yet filling. Forget smelling the roses, instead, eat a Welsh cake and watch some rugby! Bendigedig!!
Traditionally, Welsh cakes were made on a bakestone. These have become popular again and are easy to pick up in high street cooking supply shops.
It seemed like there wasn't enough flour my mixture was just a gooey mess had to add a lot more flour till it formed a firm dough. A bit disappointed as I'm welsh living in England and these are the one thing I miss the most - 08 Jan 2014
