St David's Day

Welsh cakes are traditional:
8oz SR Flour
4oz butter
2oz sugar
1tsp mixed spice
1 egg
a little milk
1-2ozs sultanas mixed in before cutting...
Make as you would scones but cut in 1/4 inch thick rounds. These are baked on a dry griddle or non-stick pan over a low heat. Each side takes 5 minutes roughly - don't ry to rush it - do preheat the griddle and don't turn over too soon. If you turn the heat up they'll burn. Sprinkle with sugar when done. Makes about 14.
