The kids saw a children's tv program today about Welsh kids making Welsh cakes...so at 18.30 tonight, what happens Amelia and I make some.
Here's the simple recipe stolen from the BBC Food site
Rub the fat into the sieved flour to make
breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, dried fruit and then the egg. Mix to
combine, then form a ball of dough, using a splash of milk if needed.
Roll out the pastry until it is a 5mm/¼in thick and cut into rounds with a 7.5-10cm/3-4in fluted cutter.
You now need a bakestone or a heavy iron griddle.
Rub it with butter and wipe the excess away. Put it on to a direct heat
and wait until it heats up, place the Welsh cakes on the griddle,
turning once. They need about 2-3 minutes each side. Each side needs to
be caramel brown before turning although some people I know like them
Remove from the pan and dust with caster sugar
while still warm. Some people leave out the dried fruit, and split them
when cool and sandwich them together with jam.
I love them warm from the pan, here's the proud chefand of course, a yummy mandarin orange with strawberry jelly English trifle doesn't go down too badly either :o)Haven't been near the sewing machine all week, am hoping to sneak something in tomorrow and next week. It's been gorgeous weather here this week 16/17C each day but alas the colder weathers is returning next week and perhaps even some more snow *sigh*Have lots of UFO's to finish in March and I want to stitch one or two more machine embroidered tweets
