Baking Stones

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Leslie Criswell

These treats are a cross between English muffins and pancakes...but uniquely Welsh. They are quite nutritious, too, especially if you use all or part whole wheat flour.

I made these today and they are very yummy! This recipe made 15 baking stones. The only problems I had were after the first 5 minutes when it says to turn them over, I found they were way too soft to turn over. I tried to turn one and it fell apart so I left them alone and baked the full 10 minutes on one side and they turned out just fine. Also next time I will reduce the salt by half as I can taste quite a bit of salt in them. These really are very tasty little treats.
