I have been asked for a Welsh Cake recipe so often I thought it was about time I made them! These are gluten free and so delicious, they work best with proper butter but you can make them with dairy free spread or margarine if you really want to. They are so tasty you won't be able to stop at eating just one.

This recipe is...

Ingredients

230g gluten free self raising flour (I used Free From Fairy Wholegrain Self Raising Flour)

Drop of milk (if needed)

Method

1. Place the flour in a bowl and break in the butter, using your hands to rub in the butter to create breadcrumbs.

2. Add the sultanas and sugar to the breadcrumb mix and stir in. Crack in the add and mix using a wooden spoon to make a dough. If it is too crumbly add in a drop of milk, if too wet add just a little flour until it is handleable.

3. Roll out the dough to about half a centimetre thick and cut using a pastry cutter (about 6cm diameter).

4. Place a knob of butter in a griddle or frying pan and heat. Place the rounds in the frying pan and fry for 2-3 mins on each side, be careful not to burn them, they do burn pretty easily! Remove from the pan and allow to cool.
