Welcome Home--with Welsh Cakes

 In case you missed sitting at our table and sharing some great food,fun and fellowship, we have decided to share  our daily cooking endeavors with you.  As we have collected friends and recipes from both sides of the ocean, this  blog will represent our melding of Mediterranean and Midwest-
with  favorite recipes given to us from friends all around the globe.

This morning we'll make Welsh Cakes, via Gwen from Newcastle,
England. Just to let you know, we always use butter (one of the state
foods of Minnesota!)-so if you're going to cook with us, go out and
get a supply of butter, olive oil and rosé wine!!

Welsh Cakes
put a big griddle on the stove-
in a medium bowl mix
     2 cups flour
     2 teas. baking powder
     1/2 teas. salt
     1/2 cup sugar
      rub in to above mixture-1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
     stir in
     1 egg
     1/4 cup milk
     1 teas. vanilla
     1/2 cup currants
roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, 1/4-1/2 inch thick 
cut in 3 inch circles with cookiecutter or rim of water glass.
     fry cakes in butter in medium hot skillet-about 2 minutes on each
side-till nicely browned.  Eat them slathered with butter-warm is
optimal-for breakfast or dessert-or take as traveling food as our
friend Jon does as he goes to Norway!!!  

Yes, Venetta, Yannis will do
Soutzoukakia  tommorrow!!!

See you then!
