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.
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 teaspoon of milk
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
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.
