Welsh Cakes

As it is St. David's day today I thought I would celebrate with a little batch of Welsh Cakes. Super quick and easy to rustle up and utterly moorish.

Welsh Cakes
Makes 20 approx 7 pro points per 2 cakes, because you can't have just one!

225g self raising flour
85g caster sugar
1/2 tsp mixed spice
100g butter
50g currants
1 egg, beaten
Splash of milk if needed

Mix in a bowl the flour, sugar, mixed spice, then rub in the butter till crumbly. Add the currents and beaten egg, mix together to form a consistency of pastry, adding a little milk if needed.

Roll out on a floured surface to about 5mm thick, then cut out using a 6cm cutter. Grease a frying pan and cook the cakes in batches for about 3 minutes each side.

Eat warm, eat cold, with butter and jam, dusted with sugar or by themselves, they are wonderful.
