Welsh Cakes and Stuffed Camenbert Cheese

This could be a wonderful appetizer but also great just for an afternoon luncheon with friends or even a shower for someone special.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  •  1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 large egg, beaten with a fork
  • 1/3 cup light cream

Combine first six ingredients in a large bowl.  Cut the butter in until it becomes crumbly.  Stir in the raisins.  Add egg and cream. Stir until dough holds together forming a ball.  Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about one quarter inch thick.  Cut into three inch circles.

Heat your fry pan to a medium low temperature. Cook cakes, a few at a time, until both sides are browned.  Just make sure it is not as hot as you would have for making pancakes.  Serve cold with the Camembert below.

 Stuffed Camenbert

  • 4 oz. small camembert round
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 2 tbsp sliced toasted almonds
  • 2 tbsp sliced seedless red grapes

Cut the cheese round in half horizontally. Mash cream cheese and orange juice together.  Add almonds and grapes. Mix well.

Place on bottom round of cheese and place other half on top. Place in center of serving plate and surround with Welsh Cakes. Absolutely wonderful to look at and eat but not hard to make. Just make sure each guest has his own spreader knife.
