  1. I'm the same way about baking. Your recipe looks awesome, I definitely want to slather jam or butter all over the cakes and enjoy them with a huge cup of coffee! Happy Easter, lady!

  2. Oh my gosh, my dad (who is half Welsh) has been making these recently and they are delicious! He loves currants, and so do I, so they are left in. It's good to see these pop up!

  3. Hello Becca - Here's an amazing tidbit of coincidence. My name is Joe Carbone and my wife and I make Welsh Cakes in the U.S. as a business since 2009. Our company is called "The Welsh Baker" and our facebook page is www.facebook.com/WelshBaker. We make 1000's of these cakes every week. First off, somewhat amazingly, your cakes looked VERY much like the cakes we make, which is ununusual as most people who make these cakes by hand end up with much thinner and irregularly shaped results. If you go to our website you will see cake displays just like what you display above. The more amazing thing to me is that my wife and I also have a daughter and we call her... guess what? Becca, short for Rebecca! That's some crazy coincindence! We roll our cakes in fine sugar and I don't see you did that.. if you decide to do this again in the future, we recommend rolling lightly in Bakers Sugar (it's finer than regular sugar). Keep up the good work!

    2. I was actually very happy to see your cakes turned out so nicely. We sometimes get people saying "Your cakes look too perfect" but we know that if you take your time and do it right you can get a nice looking result, as your cakes clearly demonstrate. It also helps if you make 1000's every week, you tend to get good at it :) BTW - Where abouts on this planet do you call home? We assumed Wales since you used metric measurements in your write up and since nobody in America uses metric..

    3. I'm living in Liverpool at the moment actually :) I'm originally from Hertfordshire though. I've visited family in Wales a lot, but have never lived there myself.

  6. I just saw this post on RecipeNewZ - what a great recipe! Love it! I have seen Welsh cakes a couple of times, but never tried. Now that I see how simple it is, I want to make them myself. They look so delicious! Thanks for sharing :-)

  7. I like the more "not perfect" welsh cakes, the ones with unpredictable edges that look as if they were really made by human beings
    :)
    I read the posts above and just had to comment. Perfection can be dull, ! Just my 2 cents !
    :O
