    These Traditional Welsh Cakes are the cutest, mini dough-like cakes that I love making for breakfast sometimes or a tea time snack. Softer than a crumpet, the dough is so easy to make and can be prepared in just a few minutes. Then using a cookie cutter, cut 3-inch round shapes that get cooked in butter on a hot griddle pan or bake stone.

    Enjoy them just as with some caster sugar sprinkled over or use two cakes to make a jam sandwich! They’re yum!
