- 225g self-raising flour
- 110g unsalted butter
- 85g caster sugar
- 1 egg yolk mixed with 3 tbs milk
- 25g raisins
This was an easy recipe that the Little Man was able to do mostly by himself.
First he measured out the flour into a big bowl.
We then added the butter which I'd cubed and put in the fridge to keep really hard and cool.
He used his little hand to pinch and rub the four and butter together.
Then we added the sugar and the raisins.
(well, ok, he ate the raisins, so we measured some more and added them!)
Then we mixed up the egg yolk and milk and he added it to the mix.
I had to help him mix it all together as it was quite stiff and he's a little shy to hard work.
The fun bit was rolling out the dough and then cutting out the cakes.
Then it was over to mummy to cook the cakes in a dry frying pan. If the cakes stick then you can add a little butter to the pan, but the idea is not to fry them. They cook really quick in just two minutes each side.
This mix makes around 12 welshcakes.
They are really nice eaten while still warm.

I asked the Little Man how much he liked cooking and he gave me this look!
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in.
