Welsh Cakes

I always enjoy getting new recipes from family and friends!  Last weekend when we were in Florida for our son’s wedding, we got to taste some yummy cookies.  These were made by the grandmother of my new daughter-in-law.  They are fantastic!  And what’s interesting about them is that they are fried like pancakes!


1 c. sugar

1 c. shortening

3-1/2 c. flour

1-1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. nutmeg

1 c. raisins

1/2 c. milk

1 egg


Cream together the sugar and shortening.  Sift together the dry ingredients and set aside.  Blend together the raisins, milk and egg.  Combine all three mixtures until well blended.  Roll out dough on a floured board and cut out using various shapes. Lightly grease a frying pan and fry the cakes until golden brown on both sides.  While still warm, butter lightly and dip into a cinnamon/sugar mixture.  (If using an electric skillet, set the temperature to 300 degrees.)
