So this afternoon the Wee Man and I decided to try our hand at making Welsh cakes. I found a recipe on the BBC recipe website and adapted it to suit the Wee Man.
What you'll need
- 225g/8oz Doves Farm Gluten Free Self Raising Flour, sieved
110g/4oz Pure Sunflower Spread
- Orgran No Egg
- handful of raisins
- Oatly oat milk, if needed
- 85g/3oz caster sugar
- extra Pure, for the pan
Rub the flour and Pure together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add two tablespoons of water to one teaspoon of No Egg and whisk with a fork until the mixture is frothy.
Add the No Egg mixture, the sugar and the raisins to the flour and Pure mixture and mix together until a dough is formed. If the dough is not forming, use some oat milk to moisten the mixture.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a 5mm/ 1/4inch thickness.
Using a cookie cutter cut out some rounds. That's the Wee Man's favourite job.
Rub a heavy iron griddle or heavy bottomed frying pan with some Pure and put on a low/ medium heat. When the griddle is hot put the cakes on and let each side cook for two to three minutes, turning only once.
Each side should be golden brown.
