Sweet - Currant Fried Biscuit
(Welsh Cakes)
What You Need:
  • 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ pound lard
  • ½ pound margarine
  • 2½ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1½ cups currants
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk

  • How To Cook:
    1. Blend the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Using a pastry blender, cut in the lard and margarine until the mixture is grainy.

    2. Stir in the sugar, nutmeg, and currants. Beat the eggs and mix with the milk. Blend the liquid into the solids, stirring with a fork to form soft dough.

    3. Roll out the dough about ½ inch thick and cut into rounds of desired size. A round cookie cutter works well for this.

    4. Bake on an electric nonstick, griddle, with thermostat set between 325°F and 350°F (griddle should be ungreased), on one side until the edges are firm (golden brown) then turn only once to cook the other side. Do not undercook.

    5. To ensure uniform thickness, a ½-inch-thick wooden form can be made and the cookies rolled out inside the form with the rolling pin resting on the wood.

    To Make: about 5 dozen, depending on size of cutter
