I haven't baked anything in a long time (approximately a week and a half...) and as my dad and sister just got back from a holiday in Wales, my sister was desperate to try homemade welsh cakes (but naturally could not stop playing Harry Potter PS2 games to actually help!)
They remind me of a cross between pancakes and scones- rather odd really, but very delicious :) They are very very easy to make- I've never even eaten one before and I managed OK (they have the sister seal of approval too!)
Like most recipes I find online it's a bit of a mish-mash of several recipes, but it seems to work well for me, so here you are!
250g self raising flour
75g salted butter
75g caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon of mixed spice
milk (a little, if needed)
1) Rub together the flour and butter (get your hands in a combine it with the tips of your fingers- I rather enjoy doing this!) You'll end up with a kind or breadcrumby texture.
2) Add the caster sugar, mixed spice and stir in.
3) Mix in the egg to form a thick paste/dough- you might need to add a little milk to get the right consistency. Add the currents and makes sure they are evenly distributed.
