Happy St.David's and New Facebook Page


Hey everyone :) Firstly thanks so much for all the support, it means so much to us! and we are so grateful <3
Also, we have set up a Facebook Page for the blog, and we would love it if you could like the page, just click here
So now to the rather random post, in case you didn't know today is St.David's day- which is National Welsh Day :) and although I'm a little biased (being half Welsh and all :))  I thought that I would do a quick baking post on one of my favourite things to make and eat- Welsh cakes! Similar to scones, the sugar covered, cinnamon lovelies are irresistable and definately worth a try! The perfect thing to make if you ever need a sweet fix in a dash, and amazing with a cuppa :) Enjoy!

Ingredients
230g self rasing flour
110g butter
85g sugar
55g raisins or currants
1 egg
Cinammon (to your liking)



1) Sieve the flour into a bowl with the cinnamon and then rub in the butter until it is like fine breadcumbs, then add the sugar and raisins/currants and mix well. Beat the egg and add to the bowl. Mix well, until the mixture forms a ball.


2) Then knead for a few minutes, then roll out on a floured surface until about 1cm thick.



3) Using a circular cutter (although feel free to experiment with other shapes!) cut into shapes. Should make roughly 12 cakes.


4) Heat a little vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the cakes on both sides for about 4-8 minutes in total. Keep an eye on them otherwise they will burn!




5) By far the best stage! Serve hot and sprinkle with icing sugar, as much or as little as you like! I like mine nice and sweet :)

And thats it, Welsh Cakes in 5 easy steps, it literally takes 10 minutes, and is so worth it!
