I've got to admit, the mix was so yummy, I couldn't help having a nibble even before it had been cooked. Dan's Mam's top tip was to have the mix on the dry side so that was my aim:
I rolled it to about 1/4 inch thick and used a round cutter to make the cakes. I already had the plank on a low heat so I was ready to get cooking.
My main problem was getting distracted by cutting out the next cakes while there were cakes on the griddle. The result - burnt welsh cakes :( They just seemed to cook a lot quicker than what I was expecting. I think next time I would definitely cut them all out and then cook them in batches - watching them the whole time! The ones in the middle were definitely the worst as it was a hot spot so for the rest of the cakes I avoided the middle of the plank.
These were some of the least burnt ones:
And with a sprinkle of caster sugar to finish:
For not many ingredients I made about 50 so will definitely be taking some in to work tomorrow so Dan and I don't scoff the lot :)
