100g / 3˝oz superfine / caster sugar
Handful of seedless raisins
1 medium sized egg
1 teaspoon of olive oil
˝ teaspoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of Mixed Spice (All Spice)
Four drops of milk

METHOD

YOUR CHILD - Put the self-raising flour, baking powder, mixed spice and salt in a large bowl.

Use a fork to mix all of the ingredients together.

 

 
YOU - Chop the butter into 2cm / 1in cubes
YOUR CHILD - add the butter to the mix and use your fingers to rub the butter into the mixture until it is crumbly.
You will always end up with a few larger crumbs but this is not a problem.

 
 

Crumbly mixture for Welsh Cakes
 

YOU- Break the egg into a bowl and whisk lightly until mixed.
YOUR CHILD -
Add the egg, sugar and raisins to the mixture. Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. Add the very small amount of milk and mix again so that it can be formed into a ball.
 



     
YOU and YOUR CHILD - Sprinkle a little flour on a flat surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the mixture to about 1cm / ˝in thick. Keep turning the mixture as you roll it out.



YOUR CHILD - When the mixture is rolled out, use a 5cm / 2in pastry cutter to cut out as many cakes as possible.
Give the pastry cutter a twist before lifting out each cake.



YOU - Add the olive oil to a frying pan and heat to a low to medium heat. Test using just one cake first to get the heat level correct. Add some of the cakes to the pan and cook for three minutes. Flip the cakes over and cook for a further 3 minutes. Each side should be golden brown.



YOUR CHILD - Arrange the Welsh Cakes on a plate, sprinkle some sugar over them and eat!

Welsh Cakes can be eaten hot or cold, our private testing rated them slightly better when hot.

THIS RECIPE IS FOR A WELSH CAKE,
TASTY, DELICIOUS AND EASY TO MAKE!
