Pice Ar Y Maen (Welsh Cakes)
A Recipe from Wales!
1 lb plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
10oz. butter
6oz. sugar
6oz. mixed currants and sultanas(seedless)
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
1 egg
a little milk

 

Mix together flour and baking powder, then rub in butter. Add sugar, spice and fruit. Mix in the beaten egg and just enough milk to make the same consistency as short-crust pastry. Turn out onto a floured board, roll out and cut into rounds about 3 in. across and 1/2 in. thick. Cook over a medium heat in a very lightly greased pan or on a griddle for about 3-4 mins on each side. If they brown too quickly, lower the heat, for the inside must have time to cook thoroughly, so that it has a brittle, sandy texture. Serve either hot or cold sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon, jam or honey.
