Welsh Cakes
 
1 cup  flour
4 tsp  baking power
2/3 tsp  salt
3 Tbsp  sugar (this can be reduced)
4 Tbsp  butter
  about 1/2 cup milk
1   egg beaten
1 cup  currants
  optional - rind of 1 lemon.
 
cooking directions: cut shortening into flour. add currants and lemon peel 
if used. add egg and enough milk to make a soft dough. knead dough for 
about 1/2 minute. roll 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick. use a small glass (or cookie 
cutter) 2 to 3 inches in diameter to cut dough into circles. heat a 
griddle to medium heat. you should not need to grease the griddle. put the 
cakes on the griddle and fry until the first side is a light brown, flip 
the cakes over and cook until the next side is also brown. i usually press 
the cakes down when they are first turned over because they rise quite 
well.
