Chocolate Chip Welsh Cake Recipe
This year for St David’s Day we made some chocolate chip welsh cakes. I love traditional welsh cakes but we wanted to make something different this year so we added chocolate chips instead of raisins. They were really delicious and perfect for my little ones who don’t like raisins!
They were quite easy to make too, Little Miss J loved getting her hands dirty and mixing these the proper way with her hands. Don’t worry if you don’t have a traditional bakestone to cook them on, a non stick frying pan will do just fine. We used a griddle pan as I like the look that gives the welsh cakes.
- 1 lb self raising flour
- 6 oz margarine
- 6 oz caster sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp of milk
- 100g chocolate chips
- Sift the flour, salt and spices into a large bowl. Rub in the margarine with your fingers until the mixture is like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and chocolate chips. Whisk the egg and mix well into the mixture. Add the milk slowly, until the mixture just comes together to form a dough. You may need a little more or a little less. Flour your surface and roll your dough to half a centimetre thick. Cut into circles with a cookie cutter or upturned mug or cup. Grease a non-stick frying pan with butter and cook the little cakes on a medium heat, turning halfway until they are golden brown. Leave on a wire rack to cool and sprinkle with sugar to finish.
