PHIL QUANTRILL’S WELSH CAKES

Phil Quantrill was the first teacher that our kids had, at a playschool that we started in Toronto in 1983. She was a lovely Welsh woman who has remained in our hearts all of these years later. We make her recipe every St. David’s Day.

You’ll Need:

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup butter

¼ cup currants

1/3 cup fine sugar

1 eggs

2 Tbs. milk

1. Mix flour & baking powder. Rub in butter until crumbly.

2. Mix sugar and currants. Add to flour & butter.

3. Beat egg with milk. Add to other ingredients and combine to form dough. Add more flour if necessary to be able to knead lightly. Roll to ¼” thick and cut into rounds.

4. Cook on griddle, flipping to cook both sides. Dust with sugar.
