Happy St David's Day from a Very Happy Welshie

St David is the patron Saint of Wales.
The 1st of March is the day the Welsh celebrate his life and the Welsh culture 

I have something to celebrate on this Welshie day

A Card, and who do you think this is this from?

Not just a card.

Gifts from the one I love "Stanzie"

A Dragon, a Heart and photo album to keep under my pillow

Love you Stanzie always. 
Thanks for making one Welshie's
St David's Day so special

Stanzie say's they will be making Welsh Cake's
Here's my recipe


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!


Happy St David's Day Everyone

Love and Hugs George and Tess xxx
