Granny's Welsh Cakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by KristinB

This recipe was given to my grandmother many, many years ago by an old Welsh lady. They are a family favorite in all generations. They are different from the other recipes listed here as they do NOT have milk--eggs are the only liquid.

a might bit too eggy for my tastes. prefer the melt-in-your-mouth texture of the milk recipe, but still a very good welsh cake.
