I love Wales, it’s a beautiful country full of pretty awesome people (unless the rugby is on, then they’re my enemy!). I lived in Wales for four years, the beautiful sea-side town of Aberystwyth, I miss it a lot. One of the many amazing things to come out of Wales is Welsh cakes – they’re so simple, but oh so delicious. They’re thin, flat cakes that you cook on a griddle, full of dried fruit (usually raisins/sultanas) and mixed spices. I hate to think how many Welsh Cakes I got through in my four years in Aber, probably far too many. I’ve never made them myself though, I was always a bit intimidated by them – they’re a well loved, traditional treat in Wales, if you get them wrong you’re not forgiven!
