    1. Oooh, start her young, though. Mine used to sit in the kitchen with me as babies, playing with wooden spoons or plastic bowls, bits of pasta rec. My youngest is 2 1/2 and has been taste testing, stirring egg for a good few months now 😊. Thanks for stopping by


  1. Love welsh cakes! I was born in Wales and lived there until 2 years ago, studied Welsh at but I had no idea these were called bake stones! Also I’ve never made them myself so will definitely give this recipe a try XX #thesatsesh


    1. Thanks for stopping by. I moved from Wales over 10 years ago now (but I’m only an hour away from home so I get to go back often). I thought everyone in Wales called them bakestones (predictive text just changed that to gallstones 😂) but one of my work colleagues is also Welsh and had never heard of it either! I guess it depends where you come from. I hope you enjoy them xx


  2. Aww it’s so nice that you’re kids are interested in cooking! Also I love Welsh cakes! My parents live in Wales so I often get them to bring me over a few! x

  3. #thesatsesh – saved and I’ll make some this weekend. However, I’ve several questions – what do you put with them? (butter / jam?) and when do you eat them – afternoon snack or tea, breakfast? I love the images of your little one getting stuck in, I’m also hoping little dude may want to join me…feeling inspired!

    1. Thanks, that means a lot. You can eat them without anything added (although some people sift caster sugar over them while they are still warm for extra sweetness). I’m sure it’d taste good with a bit of jam on though. I’ll quite happily eat them any time of day 😊 though my favourite is as a snack with a cuppa. Vic really enjoyed making this, she did pretty much every job (with some help). It’s definitely a good one for kids, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by xx
