Perhaps with my name, it may come as no surprise to you that I have a Welsh heritage with my Mother's side of the family being Welsh. Although I have never lived in Wales, growing up my Mother would always cook these delicious Welsh cakes on St David's Day. This recipe comes from "Favourite Welsh Recipes" compiled by Sheila Howells. It is a traditional recipe using old fashioned "Lard". Now my Mother is no longer with us, I find it a beautiful and special way to keep memories alive. It is also a wonderful way of creating new traditions with my children and a chance to share a little about my Mum with them.
