BOOKISH BITES: Welsh Cakes

Welsh cakes are not to be confused with drop scones. I’m serious. It’s something we are prepared to fight over. Call them anything other than what they are and they may be withheld from you. You’ve been warned.

If you haven’t had one, Welsh cakes are heaven bundled up into one delicious mouthful. Sprinkled with sugar and dotted with raisins they are sweet, sugary and the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea. Some people have them with butter, cream or jam (heathens) but I think they are better on their own. These were made by my grandmother from a family recipe that won many a school Eisteddfod competition in their time. I’m hoping she will pass on her wisdom, because they are honestly the best Welsh cakes I have ever had the privilege of scoffing.
