Welsh Breakfast Cakes


Last Sunday I decided to make these little cakes for a late breakfast/brunch.  They are a yummy cross between a biscuit, a pancake and shortbread cookie.  I sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar as they came out of the pan, then Kat and I ate them with a little butter, while Shane had his butter-free.  I tried one with a little drizzle of pancake syrup.  I didn't like it much that way, but maybe you will.

I found the recipe at My Kitchen Cafe.  Other than reducing everything by half, I made them exactly according to the recipe.  Give them a try if you want something a little different for breakfast or brunch.

YUMMY! I always love your recipes because they are frugal! I think that we have the same plates. Dollar tree?
Have a great weekend!

Cookbook Junkie: Do you use the same recipe?

Sheila: They're a nice change.

SonyaAnn: I'm not sure where I got that plate, but it's the only one I have. It has more colored rings in the middle (covered by the cakes). My everyday plates are a mixed set of Corelle that came from my MIL and my step-MIL. Bet they'd love that if they knew I combined their sets.

We're having a boatload of company this weekend. I should run this past my hubby and see if he wants to do this for them. Looks so good!

My recipe is a bit different. You can see it if you click on the link I posted.

These 'cakes' are commonly sold in the area where I grew up - Scranton, PA. Lard is common but I haven't tried that. I also don't dip mine in sugar which they often do. I don't find the extra sweetness necessary.

Hey
Cookbook Junkie! I've over outside of Wilkes-Barre PA. ;-)
We call these Welsh Cookies here. You have to make them with the currants or raisins....and you don't need to drown them in syrup or anything.
Good Eats!
