225g salted butter or lard
450g self raising flour
170g caster sugar
2 eggs
170g sultanas
caster sugar, for dusting
Makes 20 Welsh Cakes


Prep:10min › Cook:10min › Extra time:20min cooling › Ready in:40min
1.In a large bowl, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, eggs and sultanas. Mix with your hands until a firm dough forms.
2.Turn out the dough onto a floured board and roll out until 1cm (1/2 in) thick, then cut into rounds using a fluted cutter.
3.To cook, grease a bakestone or a cast iron pan with butter and then wipe away with kitchen paper. Cook the Welsh cakes for 2 to 3 minutes until a dark caramel colour forms on the underside, then flip over and cook the same on the other side.
4.Arrange on a serving plate, then dust with caster sugar while still hot. Serve hot or cold.


Traditionally, Welsh cakes were made on a bakestone. These have become popular again and are easy to pick up in high street cooking supply shops.
