About this recipe: Traditional Welsh pancakes. These make a lovely afternoon treat for children coming home from school! I think you get the best results if you use an electric griddle.
These aren't proper Welsh Cakes! Welsh Cakes use a traditional recipe containing a mix of lard and butter, mixed spice, mixed fruit (raisins, currants, sultanas), flour. baking powder and sugar. They should NOT be cooked on an electric griddle! They should be cooked in the traditional way on a proper baking stone. If you don't have that then a heavy based pan or griddle would be preferable. - 22 Feb 2012
I made this for my family and they all liked it though I had to let them cook for a while to insure they were cooked all the way through. I'm not sure we have the same version of sultanas here in Alaska as is used in the UK so I used raisins. The nutmeg made these extra tasty and I added some cinnamon. Placing these in freezer bags allowed these to be reheated in the toaster through out the week for a quick snack. - 05 Oct 2008
