Welsh cakes


500g self raising flour
185g margarine
185g castor sugar
90g currants
2 eggs
Half tsp cinnamon
Medium cutter

Preparation Method

Put flour, castor sugar, cinnamon and margarine in a large bowl and rub in,
then add currants and eggs and mix with a fork until it goes into a mix you can roll into a ball (add a little milk if mix is a little dry).

Roll out (approx 5mm inch depth) and use cutter.

If you don’t have a proper bakestone plate use a big frying pan.  Warm pan on a medium heat, place in pan and cook until golden brown, if they cook too quickly turn them down.

Sprinkle with castor sugar to serve (normal sugar will do too).
