7/52 for the group 52 in 2013

This week's theme: Food and/or drink

Here are some Welsh cakes that I made yesterday. They are very easy and delicious with butter. :)

Here is the recipe:

4 oz self-raising flour
2 oz butter or margarine
1 oz sugar
Pinch of mixed spice
1½ oz dried fruit of some kind (currants/sultanas/raisins)
A drop or two of milk to mix

Rub the butter into the flour.
Add the sugar, spice and fruit and mix them in.
Add a drop of milk to bind the mixture together into a soft dough.
Roll out the dough until it is about half and inch (1 cm) thick.
Cut into circles with a pastry cutter.
Cook on a griddle or heavy frying pan until done, flipping occasionally to ensure even cooking.

Eat hot or cold with butter.
