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.
