Welsh Cakes

Recipe photo courtesy of Mike Krautter

A cross between a cookie, scone, and pancake, these intriguing treats are cooked on a griddle, not baked (despite its other name, Welsh bakestones). Martha's version is spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and studded with dried currants and candied lemon peel.

    The recipe is fine. The lemon zest is not traditional of course but is a good addition. Please cut them with a plain round cutter! No Welsh cook makes them square, in fact I've never seen them square before and I've seen and made thousands!

      I agree with the above review. The recipe is okay but Welsh Cakes are always round never square. This is my favorite treat when I return home to my family.
