How to make Welsh Cakes
What you’ll need:
100g Talgarth Mill wholemeal self-raising flour
125g white self-raising flour
75g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
75g mixed fruit
You will need a heavy frying pan with a solid base
Sift the dry ingredients, and rub in the butter.
When the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs add the fruit and mix thoroughly before beating the egg and adding it to the mixture.
Mix to a dough, and if it seems too dry, add a little milk. It should be soft but not sticky.
Roll out on a lightly floured work surface, to approximately 5mm thick. Using a 6.5cm cutter cut into rounds, re-rolling the trimmings to use all the dough.
Lightly grease the frying pan and put it onto a medium heat.
Cook the Welsh cakes in batches for approximately 3 minutes per side.
They should be fairly brown and crisp on the outside.
Serve dusted with caster sugar, preferably warm.
