We attended a county fair in Wales and the ladies of the local church were baking and selling these. We asked for the recipe and they graciously shared it with us. This has been converted to US standard. They are delicious and not as sweet as some of our style cookies. Dried currants can be used in place of the raisins.

- Sift flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Put in butter and lard and mix until resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar and currants or raisins. Beat the eggs lightly and add to flour mixture with just enough milk to make a firm dough similar to shortcrust pastry.
- Chill dough 1 to 2 hours.
- Roll the dough to 1/4 inch on floured surface and cut with 3 inch rounds. Bake the cakes on a greased griddle or frying pan (I use my electric skillet with just a little non-stick spray) over low heat until golden brown. Cool and sprinkle with sugar. These also freeze well.

My grandfather was Welsh and liked to make Welsh cakes on the griddle. Our whole family loves them. Sometimes he would make them for Christmas and wrap them in little bundles for each family. It's a very special memory for us. -Wendy Masters, East Garafraxa, Ontario

- Tip the flour, sugar, mixed spice, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Then, with your fingers, rub in the butter and lard until crumbly. Mix in the currants. Work the egg into the mixture until you have soft dough, adding a splash of milk if it seems a little dry - it should be the same consistency as shortcrust pastry.
- Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to the thickness of your little finger. Cut out rounds using a 6cm cutter, re-rolling any trimmings. Grease a flat griddle pan or heavy frying pan with lard, and place over a medium heat. Cook the Welsh cakes in batches, for about 3 mins each side, until golden brown, crisp and cooked through. Delicious served warm with butter and jam, or simply sprinkled with caster sugar. Cakes will stay fresh in a tin for 1 week.

This recipe is from Chatelaine's Heritage Collection of Recipes, published in 1968. I didn't have any mixed peel but they are really good with just currants. Fried them on an electric griddle. Had to increase the temperature to 300F as the heat varies considerably across the griddle top. They are seriously addictive!!!!

- Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl and cut in shortening finely. Add fruit, then eggs mixed with milk to make a stiff dough. (I ended up using my hands to get it to combine.)
- Roll to 1/4-inch thickness on a floured surface. (It is more convenient to roll out half the dough at a time.) Cut out rounds with a sharp two-inch cookie cutter.
- Bake on a heated griddle on low heat, or an electric fry pan set at 250F for 8 to 10 minutes. When golden brown on one side, turn and bake second side until golden.
- Serve hot with butter as a tea cake or serve cold. Store in a covered container.
- NOTE: Shortening is satisfactory in this recipe but butter or hard margarine gives a richer flavour and colour. (I used hard margarine.) I estimated two as a serving. (Don't think you'll stop with two!).
- Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.
