Welsh cakes (Welsh: picau ar y maen) are a popular cake in Wales that are similar to scones and Cornish Heavy cakes.




  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour then rub together with the butter and salt until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Mix in sugar and dried fruit.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating together until mixture forms a thick dough. If dough will not form, add a small amount of milk (i.e. a tablespoon).
  4. Knead for two to three minutes until dough becomes cohesive and slightly elastic.
  5. Roll dough out on a flat surface.
  6. Cut two to three inch circles from the dough and fry on a griddle until golden brown.
