Samantha from Naturally Crafty is back today with her easy peasy step-by-step guide to making DIY Welsh Cake wedding favours, these are perfect favours for a Welsh wedding- home made and delicious!
To make the Welsh cakes you will need:
225g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon mixed spice
75g caster sugar
110g unsalted butter
100g mixed dried fruit
1 large egg
A large bowl
6cm circle cutter
Sift the dry ingredients together.
Rub in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
Add the fruit and mix thoroughly.
Add the egg to the mixture.
Mix into a firm dough. If its too dry, add just a spot of milk. If it’s too sticky add a touch of flour. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 8mm thick.
Use the cutter to cut the dough, re-rolling the trimmings until all the dough is used.
Lightly grease the pan with sunflower oil. Heat the pan over a medium heat and cook the Welsh cakes for about 3 minutes on each side. They should be fairly brown and crisp on the outside but don’t cook them too quickly as they need to cook inside too. If they are browning quickly turn the heat down.
Allow the welsh cakes to cool but when still slightly warm dip into caster sugar.
Your Welsh Cakes are now ready…
You can present your welsh cakes in a variety of ways including glassine bags and cellophane bags as pictured. Tie bags with twine or ribbon and add personalised tags.
If you would like any of the templates for the tags just get in touch. Happy Baking!!!
