A Thank You To Wyatt and Welsh Cakes

First up I'll like to thank Wyatt as I won his Wyatts Riot with me Welsh Cake recipe.

 The prize was, green papers  to spend in Amazon. I took a long time over what to get, It had to be something that I would look at and remember it came from Wyatt, well this is what I got.

Yep a cook book, I can get a bit board with my food, some days I just don't feel Hungry, there's some great recipes in it just like peeps food, it has photos of dogs on the pages, no WT's or Airedales but there is alot of photos of this fella

 I am not to sure why the vet says I should loose some weight, but I am, moms cut down on me paddywacks

She let me have that one in the photo, but the rest of the packet is still on the top shelve unopened!!!

I'd eat them all day if I could, she also thinks I need more exercise, who's she kidding, I'm always out and about!!!. So I also got this ball !!!

 I now have to roll it round to get me dinner!! 
I'm getting quite good at getting the food out, it makes a right racket in the kitchen lol.  

Right that enough of healthy food and excise, lets get on to the fatty but nice recipe that will put hairs on your chest! The next photo is the one that I sent in with the recipe back in August, just look how well groomed I was. Well, I got mom to get on the phone straight away to book me into the groomers, I tell yea at the moment I can hardly see where I'm going! 

George the Lad's Welsh Cakes

125g of butter
250g of self rising flour
75g of castor sugar (super fine)
Pinch of mixed spices
100g of currants/sultanas/raisins
1 egg beaten

Mix together the butter and flour
Add the egg
Put the sugar, spice and fruit into the mixture
Put the mixture into the fridge to cool for 30 minutes
Roll out the mixture to 1 cm thick
Cut into circles
Cook the cakes in a frying pan or on a bakestone WITHOUT using oil or butter until they are browned on both sides. (don't have it to hot they will burn before being cooked!!)
Sprinkle with sugar and serve, they also taste nice with butter on them.
Best when warm or reheated in microwave!


Thanks I get to try a bit

Mmmmmmm tasty

See what I mean NO EYES!!!

Anyways thanks Wyatt for the green papers to get the cook book and the ball.

Some of you know I have been on Bertie's Field Trip, go take a look, when we left we agreed that the finer details of the trip are between the furiends that went. I think I'm all right saying we all bonded very well !!! 

See Yea George xxx

Mom is really oohing and aahing over those welsh cakes - she would love to give that recipe a test. Thanks for sharing.

Great choice for your prize - you will have to let us know if you find any really special recipes.

Happy grooming, although we do like the shaggy look:)

Happy Almost Thursday,

Congrats to you, George! I love that little ball. My dad's dog has one kind of like that but his isn't nearly as pretty.

Dear George.
Fergi wanted me to tell you she's "blushing." I'm not sure what that's all about. As for me ... I'm sorta obsessing on those Welsh cakes (though Moma won't let me eat raisins or currents, so she says I'd better put my attention on the recipes likely to come from your amazing new CookBook and let HER take care of the cakes.)

Good luck with the grooming ... we just gave up all our furs, just in time for the temperatures to drop for a day.

See ya!
Jake (and Fergi)

Wyatt said...


We are still making the Welsh Cakes on the weekends. It's a new favorite around here...YUM YUM! Glad you got some nifty gifts.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Wow George those Welsh Cakes look just fantastic. I am sending Gail to the kitchen right now! Then on to the computer to order some of those Paddywhack thingies. (If only us dogs were allowed our own credit cards..)
Toodle pip!
PS To George's Dad from Gail. I'm afraid the whole thing about Murchison got a bit out of hand on the field trip (see tomorrow's post.....) Problem is that we have been reading a book called 'The Highlands Controversy' by David Oldroyd, and Bertie learned that Murchison got it all wrong when he said all the north of Scotland was Silurian. V. interesting book!

Ps, congrats on winning Wyatt's contest. I cook for Bambi, she gets nothing that is made for a dog. Look forward to some great recipes.

Road Dog Tales said...

Oh, those Welsh cakes are making us drool! Yummmm. Congrats on your winnings - excellent choices. Oh, yeah, our Mom & Dad met two girl Airedales the other day and they were reminded of you! Dad thought they were just like you, but Welse Terriers are a bit smaller, right? Have you ever done a post on the diff between Airedales and Welse Terriers? That would be really interesting. Anywho, they are the first Airedales we've seen around these parts. They were very sweet girls!
