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!!

Mamgu means grandma in welsh. The recipe (if i'm at all truthful) doesnt belong to my mamgu but a family friends nan! Bara brith means speckled bread. I love this cake spread with butter and a good cup of tea. Tips, if the cake browns quickly in your oven cover the tin with greaseproof paper and return to the oven. Although this cake is translated as bread it is more of a cake so don't be scared if you find you've sliced a cake not a piece of bread.

This favourite Welsh teabread – its name means ‘speckled bread’ – is usually made with a yeast dough by bakers but this recipe doesn't require yeast and uses a quick-mix method at home. Soaking the dried fruit in tea makes it very juicy, and produces a moist loaf with good keeping qualities. Serve it thickly sliced and lightly spread with butter or soft cheese.

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.
