Welsh cakes (Welsh: picau ar y maen, pice bach, cacen gri or teisen radell) are traditional Welsh snacks.

Recipe Ingredients for Welsh Cakes

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 cup currants, washed and drained

Recipe Directions for Welsh Cakes

  1. Mix together dry ingredients.

  2. Cut in cold butter. You can use a food processor and pulse for a few seconds until it resembles a course meal.

  3. Mix egg and milk together and slowly add to dry ingredients.

  4. Stir in currents. If they looked a bit dried out, you can plump them first by placing currents in a microwave safe dish, add cup of water and heat in microwave for 1-2 minutes. Drain and cool before mixing.

  5. Turn onto a floured board and roll 1/4 inch thick.

  6. Cut into rounds and fry on an electric skillet at 300 degrees Fahrenheit (or medium heat on a gas griddle) for about 5 minutes on each side. I do spray my griddle lightly with non-stick baking spray.
