Welsh cakes

Submitted by: LESLEY210


Number of Servings: 55

Ingredients


    All purpose white flour, 4 cups
    Baking Powder, 1 tsp
    Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp
    Allspice, 1/4 tsp
    Ginger, 1/2 tsp
    Nutmeg, fresh grated, 1/4 tsp
    Cardomom, ground, a dash
    Cloves, ground, a dash
    Butter, unsalted, cold, 1 cup
    Granulated Sugar, 3/4 cup
    Egg, fresh, beaten, 1 large
    Raisins, golden seedless, 3/4 cup, packed
    Currants, 3/4 cup
    Milk, nonfat (skim milk), under 1/2 cup

Tips

If you can find English-style mixed spice you can replace all the spices except the nutmeg with that, 1 tsp. The nutmeg has to be fresh-grated.


Directions

Serving Size: Makes 55

Mix the flour, baking powder and spices, then cut in the butter (a food processor works fine). Add the sugar and fruit and mix. Add the egg and enough milk to make a stiff paste like pastry and mix. Roll out on a floured board to about 1/4" thickness. Cut out with 2" cookie cutter, re-rolling leftover bits to make more. Cook on ungreased non-stick griddle at medium about 5 min each side, or until browned both sides and dry in the middle. If necessary, lower the heat. Place on rack to cool, if they last that long. Can be kept for a few days wrapped in wax-paper in an airtight container.
