Make Do Monday – Wartime Welsh Cakes

The months are just flying by as we get closer and closer to the show! This Monday we’re sharing a wartime recipe for Welsh cakes. You can find more of Lindsay’s wartime recipes here or have a look in the Make do Monday categories.

Ingredients:

6 oz of plain flour

2 oz of margarine

3 tea spoons of baking powder

2 oz of mixed dried fruit

1 grated carrot

2 oz of sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon of milk

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

Method:

1. Start by mixing the flour and butter in a bowl, rubbing the fat into the flour.

2. Next stir in the nutmeg, sugar, grated carrot and fruit and mix well.

3. Add the egg and enough milk to make a stiff dough. Roll the dough into about 10-12 balls and flatten the cakes out to about 1/4 inch thick.

4. Preheat a griddle and bake for 5-10 minutes on each side until golden. The most important thing is to griddle the cakes slowly on a low heat.
