icture this scene.
We’re in the fic-
tional Welsh town
of Llareggub cre-
ated by the poet
and writer Dylan
Thomas (1914–53).
It’s the middle of the
night, “starless and
bible-black”. A voice
guides us across the

streets, past shops and houses, into the
bedrooms where the townspeople are fast
asleep — only we can see and hear the “big
seas of their dreams”.

Come close and listen to Evans the
Death, the town’s undertaker, dreaming
of a cold day when he was a boy. He runs
out into the snow, where his mother is
making Welsh cakes, and steals “a fistful
of snowflakes and currants”, causing his
mother to cry out for her lost ingredients.

Could there be a better introduction
to Welsh cakes? They are as Welsh as the
poet Thomas himself, who introduced
them to the world in his 1954 radio dra-
ma Under Milk Wood. It was a cultural refer-
ence to this taste of Welsh childhood, part
of local life for centuries.

Like most things Welsh, including
Thomas himself — known for his cosmi-
cally romantic verse and long, difficult-
to-pronounce place names — these cakes
have bags of character. First of all, they are
not cooked in the oven, but on a griddle,
just like in the old days. We’re talking
about fried cakes, which proudly stand
between scones and pancakes.

The novelty of these cakes also comes
through in their special taste and texture,
which are somehow more luxurious than
their simple ingredients would suggest.
Take a mouthful of the flaky goodness:
the cakes seem like so much more than
just fat, flour and currants, as if they had
been cooked in the magical kitchen of
Thomas’s imagination.

It’s not surprising that they were pop-
ular in poor mining communities, where
they were known by their Welsh name:
pice ar y maen. The women would cook
them over the “bakestone” — a cast-iron
griddle placed on the fire — while their
men worked. Heading off in the dark
mornings, the men would put a few in
their pockets. Small and compact, they
were easy to carry and certainly provided
some cheer in the miserable pits.

Back then, in the 19th and 20th cen-
turies, Wales was a massive producer of
coal. Now, that old world has faded away
and Welsh society is very different. But
you’ll still find Welsh cakes in households
across the small nation, even if people
nowadays are more likely to make them
in a heavy frying pan rather than on a
“bakestone”.

Kids love making these cakes — it’s
the novelty of watching them cook on
the hob, rather than in the oven. This
recipe suggests making round cakes, but
you can use any shapes you like. Welsh
cakes are perfect after a day at work. Get a
pot of tea on, make yourself comfortable
on the sofa and enjoy the dreamy taste
of Llareggub.
