Our regular contributor Stephanie sends in her recipe for Welsh cakes. They are somewhat like scones and are perfect for many occasions. Stephanie packs them in her kids' lunch boxes as a treat.
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 cup currants, washed and drained
Mix together dry ingredients.
Cut in cold butter. You can use a food processor and pulse for a few seconds until it resembles a course meal.
Mix egg and milk together and slowly add to dry ingredients.
Stir in currents. If they looked a bit dried out, you can plump them first by placing currents in a microwave safe dish, add ½ cup of water and heat in microwave for 1-2 minutes. Drain and cool before mixing.
Turn onto a floured board and roll 1/4 inch thick.
Cut into rounds and fry on an electric skillet at 300 degrees Fahrenheit (or medium heat on a gas griddle) for about 5 minutes on each side. I do spray my griddle lightly with non-stick baking spray.
