My Mother-in-Law makes these every weekend. I love them warm with jam.

These were easy to make biscuits that satisfied the snack attack. I have also baked these welsh cakes as opposed to making them in the electric frying pan. I let them bake for about 10-12 minutes on a cookie sheet @ 365°. They turned out more light and fluffy. My husband preferred them in this way. As well, I used raisins as opposed to currants. Yummy!
