St David’s Day Welsh Cakes

Happy St David’s Day! To celebrate I made a delicious batch of Welsh cakes to have with a lovely cup of tea. To make it extra special I knitted a tea cosy and made a few crochet daffodils for the top!

Welsh Cakes

200grams self raising flour

200grams caster sugar

200grams Welsh butter

100grams currants

3 eggs beaten

oil for the griddle

Rub the flour and butter together in a bowl and then add the sugar and currants. Mix in the currants and the beaten egg to form a dough. Roll the dough out on a floured surface to quarter of inch thickness. Cut them into rounds. Oil a griddle or frying pan and place the welsh cakes in on a moderate heat cooking for about 3 minutes on each side. Enjoy warm with butter and jam!
