We attended a fayre in Wales and the ladies of the local church were baking and selling these traditional cakes. We asked for the recipe and they graciously shared it with us.
I am welsh, living in Canada. I have always made welsh cakes and my husband said that they were never as good as his mothers! I tried this recipe and now these are BETTER THAN HIS MOTHERS.Thanks - 13 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've had welsh cakes in Wales also. This is a very good basic recipe using american measurements. I also used all butter and added a bit of nutmeg. And a light sugar dusting when they come out of the pan. - 22 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is similar to one my Dutch gramma has made before. I use all butter instead of the lard. I've also added a tsp. of nutmeg and added white chocolate chips and craisins, and served them at a Christmas brunch. Everybody loved them! Thanks! - 31 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
