Ingredients

  • 225 g self-raising flour, sieved
  • 110 g (preferably Welsh) salted butter and extra butter for greasing
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 100 g sultanas
  • milk, if needed
  • 85 g caster sugar

Instructions

  1. Rub the butter into the sieved flour to make breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, dried fruit and then the egg. Mix to combine, then form a ball of dough, using a splash of milk if needed.

  2. Roll out the pastry until it is a 5mm/¼inch thick and cut into rounds with a 7.5-10cm/3-4inch fluted cutter.

  3. Preheat a large frying pan over a medium high heat (if using a temperature control hob, select setting 3). Rub it with butter and wipe the excess away. Place the Welsh cakes in the preheated pan, turning once. They need about 2-3 minutes each side. Each side needs to be caramel brown before turning.

  4. Remove from the pan and dust with caster sugar while still warm.
