A Welsh Delicacy

Bearing in mind Mid Wales is the place that holds the Guinness World Record title for the largest Welsh Cake (21.7kg), we thought it would be appropriate to share our secret – the perfect Traditional Welsh Cake recipe.

Wales is a country known for its historical past, culture and traditions but we are also known for having a bit of a sweet tooth. It’s no surprise that one of our national delicacies is a sweet Welsh Cake! The name however is slightly misleading, a Welsh Cake is best described as a cross between a cake and a scone and they are traditionally baked on a flat hot stone.

This Welsh delicacy is the perfect tea time treat whilst exploring the rich country side and traditional Welsh towns dotted around Ithon Valley Lodge Park. If you would like to try the recipe, simply follow the instructions below!

Traditional Welsh Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

225g plain flour

85g caster sugar

1/2 tsp mixed spice

1/2 tsp baking powder

100g butter, cut into small pieces

50g currants

1 egg, beaten

Splash of milk

How to do it:

  1. Add flour, sugar, mixed spice, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl, then gently rub in the butter with your fingers until crumbly.
  2. Next, mix in the currants then work the egg into the mixture until you have soft doughy consistency. Remember to add a splash of milk if the mixture seems to be a little dry.
  3. Lightly flour your work surface and then roll out your dough to the thickness of your little finger. Once you have the right thickness, cut round shapes roughly the size of your palm. Remember to re-roll any trimmings so that you have no waste.
  4. Now you’re ready to cook! You can use a frying pan instead of a flat hot stone. Grease your frying pan with butter and place onto a medium heat. Cook the Welsh Cakes for about 3 minutes each side, they should be a golden brown colour and crisp on top.
  5. Sprinkle with caster sugar on both sides to add to the sweetness then cool on a wire rack.

We hope we have inspired you to make your own! But if you’d rather just taste the professionals, then head down to Wales! Why not stop by Ithon Valley Lodge Park while you’re here!
