The Welsh Cake Cookbook features a selection of recipes celebrating one of Wales’ best loved dishes – the Welsh Cake. These little cakes are peculiar to Wales; the Irish are famous for their potato cakes, the Scots with their oatcakes and the Bretons with their crepes but none make a sweet scone-like delicacy with quite the same appeal as the Welsh Cake.
Recipes include the traditional recipe, using butter, fruit and spice. It is joined by a selection of new recipes such as Lavender Welsh Cake; Hazelnut and Treacle; and even some savoury recipes – how about a Welsh Cake of Caerphilly cheese and leek?
Welsh Cakes are one of the most iconic dishes of Wales and now, for the first time, they have been preserved in this beautiful, high-quality cookbook as Gilli Davies explores the versatility of this little Welsh treasure.
