“Well I am Welsh after all…I have used and tinkered with this recipe throughout the years & just altered it vegan a couple of years ago. I just love being Welsh & Welsh Cakes!”


225g plain flour
100g vegan margarine
75g caster sugar
75g currants
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp mixed spice
A pinch salt
100ml Almond milk to bind


Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly add vegan margarine and rub into the flour mixture to form a breadcrumb like consistency. Pour in the milk gradually until it forms a dough. Tip out into a floured surface and roll to the thickness of your little finger, cut into disks around 2 inches in diameter. Then cook until golden on each side in a lightly oiled heavy based pan over a medium heat. Then coat in caster sugar. So simple. Enjoy
