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.
I've developed this recipe as part of Kenwood Secret Family Recipes. Kenwood asked myself and five other bloggers to submit our own Secret Family Recipes and you may have spotted our contributions in recent weeks across various foodie publications. In this month's Olive magazine you can find my Christmas Welsh Cakes and the full recipe and details can also be found here.
Further recipes will added to the Kenwood website including our family's Bara Brith recipe:
Meanwhile, to be in with a chance to win a Kenwood Titanium Chef, submit your Secret Family Recipe to Kenwood. Further details can be found here.
As a thank you for participating in the Secret Family Recipes project, Kenwood sent me a KMix to use in the baking of the recipes.
