Delicious Welsh Cakes Recipe

– Rolling Pin – Mixing Bowl – Cooling Rack – Fork – Round Cookie Cutter


– 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1/3 cup caster sugar – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon ground mace – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


– 2 ounces lard – 2 ounces butter – 1 large egg – 1/2 cup dried currants – 2-3 tablespoons milk – granulated sugar for finished cakes


1. In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, mace, and cinnamon. 2. Use your fingers or a food processor to blend in lard and butter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.


3. Stir in currants to the mixture. Add the beaten egg to the mix and work it in. If needed, add a bit of milk until you have a soft, non-wet, and non-sticky dough. 4.  Wrap the dough and chill it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick.


5. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out rounds. Collect and re-roll any scraps to cut more rounds. Heat a cast-iron pan over medium heat, lightly buttering it. 6. Cook the cakes for 3-4 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Adjust heat as needed. Let the Welsh cakes cool for a minute.


7.  While still warm, coat all sides in sugar by placing them in a small bowl. 8.  Enjoy the Welsh cakes while slightly warm. Reheat in a pan, toaster, warmed oven, or quickly in the microwave if in a hurry.
