Mumma Scoop’s Welsh Cakes

Mumma Scoop’s Welsh Cakes

This is actually Mumma Scoop’s great Aunt’s recipe ( who was Welsh). A simple sweet treat, it was something Mumma S always made for us when we were little and even now if I get wind she’s firing up the griddle it won’t take me long to head over for a warm welsh cake and a cup of tea.

Makes approximately 20 cakes

Ingredients

  • 450g Self Raising Flour
  • 170 g margarine
  • 140 g Caster sugar
  • 140g Sultanas
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 100ml Milk

( for a vegan version you can use a vegan margarine, omit the eggs and use an additional 50ml of your chosen milk alternative)

Method:

Rub the margarine into the flour to make breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and sultanas, then stir in the egg & milk. Mix, then form a ball of dough.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is 5mm thick. Cut it into rounds using a 7.5cm/ fluted cutter.

You’ll need a heavy iron griddle & rub it with margarine or oil and wipe the excess away. Put it on a direct heat and wait until it’s super hot.

Place the Welsh cakes on the griddle and cook for a couple minutes each side until caramel brown.

Optional – dust in caster sugar while warm.

Let cool slightly before tucking in.
