We attended a county fair in Wales and the ladies of the local church were baking and selling these. We asked for the recipe and they graciously shared it with us. They are delicious and not too sweet.
I am welsh, living in Canada. I have always made welsh cakes and my husband said that they were never as good as his mothers! I tried this recipe and now these are BETTER THAN HIS MOTHERS.Thanks - 13 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I've had welsh cakes in Wales also. This is a very good basic recipe using american measurements. I also used all butter and added a bit of nutmeg. And a light sugar dusting when they come out of the pan. - 22 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is similar to one my Dutch gramma has made before. I use all butter instead of the lard. I've also added a tsp. of nutmeg and added white chocolate chips and craisins, and served them at a Christmas brunch. Everybody loved them!
