Welsh Cakes

In my home growing up we had æbleskivers because of our Danish roots. These little cakes seem to be a close cousin, the Welsh version of a European pan cake. No special pan is needed as for the æbleskiver, just a griddle or fry pan. A perfect addition to a breakfast, brunch or tea.

1¾ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, cold
1/3 cup currants
1 egg, beaten
3-4 Tbl milk or buttermilk

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter. Stir in egg and add one tablespoon of milk at a time until dough just comes together. Roll out on flour surface to 1/4″ thickness. Cut into 2½”-3″ rounds. Heat griddle or pan to medium-low to medium heat, add butter or spray with non-stick spray. Add cakes to pan and cook about 3-4 minutes each side until golden and they have risen slightly. Watch closely to understand the correct heat and cooking time according to your griddle/stove and pan, you want the outside golden and the center cooked through. As cakes come off the griddle, spread with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Makes about 20 cakes.
