Sweet Treats Saturday: Welsh Cakes

Maybe I should call these 'my attempt at Welsh cakes.'  They didn't necessarily look pretty but they were delicious.  Everybody Loves Sandwiches posted this recipe as one of their favorites for 2010.  I had never heard of them before but am considering a trip to Wales this summer so I thought I'd give them a go.

The dry ingredients are ready to be mixed

I didn't read the ingredients correctly before I went to the grocery store so I picked up fresh blueberries rather than dried.  They still tasted wonderful but I could see where there were issues.  I had to knead the dough which squished some of them, and they weren't pretty when cut in half.  Regardless, they worked.

Dough rolled out
The dough rolled out nicely but I didn't have a biscuit cutter.  I need to invest in one for when I make these again.  I ended up using a cookie cutter and then cutting the shape in half.

I then fried them up in a skillet... the scent of the orange zest was wafting through the kitchen.  It smelled wonderful.

The final result was very tasty. I could even see making them without any fruit filling as the dough was so delicious.


  1. Yum. I've never heard of Welsh cakes. Instead of a biscuit cutter, I use a drinking glass with the right diameter. Works great!

    Hmmm...we'll have to try those. I even have all the ingredients already, including biscuit cutters. ;)
