West Virginia has a Scottish Heritage Festival every summer. It’s a blast to go to and there’s some great food, great music, and great fun. I had my first welsh cakes there a few years ago and fell in love. They’re just a tad sweet and keep well.
Welsh cakes are a bit labor intensive compared to some treats, since you have to man the griddle or cast iron skillet, but it’s worth it! History has it that these were often found in Welsh coal miners’ meals. It’s nearly impossible to find real currants here in this area of the US. Zante currants are in fact a kind of raisin.
I need to make another batch of Welsh cakes. I’m out again!
