St David is the patron saint of Wales, and today is his feast day.
Why not try some traditional Welsh Cakes to celebrate?
I just made a batch, which were swiftly eaten!
8oz self raising flour
pinch of salt.
Sieve flour and salt into a bowl. Cut up fat and rub in with fingertips. Add sugar and currants and mix w/lightly beaten egg to a firm dough. Roll out on a floured board to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with fluted cutter (round wiggly-edged cookie cutter). Place on pre-heated, lightly greased griddle or solid plate. The first side will take about 4 minutes. Turn heat off and cook second side for 3 mins. Serve fresh, even slightly warm.
Blasus iawn! (very tasty)
