Dydd Gŵyl Dewi hapus! – Mwyhewch picau ar y maen… my Welsh cake recipe

Happy St David’s day.

I’m part Welsh and grew up with my grandma making Welsh cakes on her Welsh stone which belonged to her mother.

I now have the honour of looking after the Welsh stone and make a point of making Welsh cakes every March 1st.

This year I’m poorly so I can’t but thought I’d share my recipe with you all.

If you don’t have a Welsh stone you can use a heavy bottomed frying pan.

Welsh cakes

8oz self raising flour

4oz butter

2oz caster sugar

1 egg

2 oz sultanas (optional)

1tsp baking powder

Pinch of nutmeg

Sieve the dry ingredients and rub in the fat. Then add the sugar. Add sultanas if you like.

Mix into a soft dough by adding the beaten egg gradually.

Knead for a couple of minutes.

Roll out to 1/2 inch thick.

Cut into rounds and place on hot dry stone. Cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Sprinkle with sugar.

I like mine smeared with butter.

Enjoy!
