Cerys and Welsh cakes

"I like Welsh cakes because you don't have the stress of wondering if they'll rise or not, like a soufflé or scones or cup cakes. When you're making Welsh cakes, you always look like a very good baker - mistake free. They're good for cooking with young children: they can help with the mixing, dye them with food colouring (green was my favourite), cut shapes out of the mixture, pick out the raisins and sprinkle them with flour. You don't even have to cook them very long - I love half baked Welsh cakes!" Cerys Matthews
