As regular readers (hello Mum!) know, I'm very partial to a Welsh Cake.
Over the years I've developed variations of the traditional sweet, warmly spiced little cakes, all based upon my Nana's recipe, found in an old scrapbook belonging to Mum. With Christmas just round the corner it was time to bake a Yuletide version. Tempted as I was to simply sprinkle over copious amounts of sparkle, I've added a festive twist to our family recipe by exchanging the mixed spice for orange zest and currants for cranberries. They make the perfect pick - me - up at this hectic time of year and the ideal festive foodie gift.
