    V'nut-Beyond Redemption's Note:

    This is an adopted recipe and after trying it out, I must say I was very surprised on how good it tastes! Kinda homey. I don't dredge it with sugar before or after baking as I don't really need the extra bit of sugar. I used Wildflower honey.

      What a wonderful recipe - perfect for Saint David's Day March 1st. I've made them 3 times this week already, I did halve the recipe and it was perfect - still used one egg for the half recipe. Thanks so much!! Patricia

      Made these for "Virtual culinary cruise:British Isles and Ireland September 2009. These are lovely little cakes, I would recommend using quite a strong flavoured honey in the recipe to maximise the delicate flavours. The batter is quite stiff, but very easy to put together. I used dark brown sugar as it was all I had and will be making these again. Thanks for posting.

      I made these cakes for Ostara celebration. Yum! They were so easy to make and everyone loved them. I couldn't find caster sugar, so I just used powdered sugar.
