Cake Of Wales ~ Welsh Cake

The cake of Wales is also called as Welsh cake. Welsh cake is originated from Wales, United Kingdom. It is something like in between scone, cookie and pancake. Because it is made from the ingredients of scone, then roll and cut like cookie dough and finally cooked like a pancake. Welsh cake is usually served during tea beak as a quick snack. While I would love to have it at anytime.

(recipe inspired by Rosa)
Ingredients :
350gm  all purpose flour
1 tbsp + 2 tspn  baking powder
100gm  sugar
170gm  cold butter, diced
1 large egg, beaten
2 tbsp  milk
1/2 cup  raisins
1/2 tspn  cinnamon powder (optional)

Method :
(1) combine flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and sugar into a big bowl.
(2) add in butter and rub till butter is well combined with flour.
(3) add in raisins, egg & milk then mix to form a soft dough.
(4) place dough to a slightly floured working table and roll out flat about 5mm thickness.
(5) then shape dough with any cutter.
(6) finally. cook them over low heat on non-stick frying pan till brown or cooked.

I think they actually look a bit like English muffins. Are they?

These welsh cakes are really tasty. It has such terrific aroma with the touch of cinnamon powder (I prefer without it though!) and so is the melt in your mouth texture. Oh so tempting !

The special sauce for this special treat. I bet you all will love it too.

Ingredients for Sweet Plum Sauce :
4 large fresh plum, pureed
3 tbsp  sugar

Method :
combine both ingredients to a non-stick sauce pan and let it simmer till thicken, about 10 mins. (the colour looks darker) Keep refrigerated once it's cool.
