Thanks to my dear mate George The Lad's Blog - mum saw a post from last year which gave us a Welsh Cake recipe. She is an adventurous cook, and likes to mix it up a bit, and she has never had or made a Welsh Cake before.
Cooking the first side in a dry heavy based pan.
Flipping them over - mum cracked a couple because she used a flat blade knife to turn them - she found an egg flip spatula worked better (the second batch were perfect)!
YAY!!!! They looked awesome......now we must wait for our tastes! Mum bought some Strawberry, Blueberry and Cranberry conserve for the occasion.
Waiting, waiting, waiting.........COME ON PEOPLE!!! We need to try George's cakes TOO!!
Here's me sayin' "my mum made these Scarlet, that means I get FIRST tastes!!!"
I'm watching nicely (saliva building) while Grandpaw tastes his share.
Uncie made us pause for the flashy box before we got to try our bits! He gave us all a bit of his share....he did get the most after all! There is no photo of us eating.....because it is a BLURR of chewing and swallowing very quickly - but yes George, we ALL tasted your Welsh Cakes - and they get FOUR PAWS UP from us!!!!
Mum wishes me to mention that she gave each of us schnauzers some of her share. Love my mum!
After dinner we adjourned to the lounge - and got back to playing chasey and bitey face. Don't my eyes look evil in this photo?!
What's all this excitement about???? Zoe and me were meeesmerized!
We found a black bug to harass - see Zoe's schnauzer shadow....
Scarlet got bored with the bug quickly....and waited for us to "get over it".
Mum taking a photo of Zoe's cute face.
This is the usual end to a play time with my cousins....... pooped....
Our work here is done.
Feedback from humans re: Welsh Cakes - We found them to be light and yummy too, a different texture to a cake per se, but well worth the exercise......try them - but you need to be patient when cooking them - don't rush the dry frying! A little splash of milk was required to bring the dough together prior to the refrigeration. All in all - a great success! Thanks George and your humans!
