I once had the good fortune to live in the beautiful land of Wales for five years. I love the stunning scenery and the Welsh accent, and I have some great memories (and friends!) from that time in my life. So I can’t let the day of their patron saint – St David – pass without baking some classic Welsh fare: Welsh cakes and bara brith.
Welsh cakes are easy to make – and even easier to eat. Warm, with butter melting on top … I dare anyone to eat just ONE Welsh cake!
Bara brith is a tea bread – and I love tea breads! They smell amazing when they’re baking, and they’re tasty warm or cold.
So have a wonderful day, wherever you are, and kisses to all my Welsh mates!
