Wales famous for its agriculture and mining, was once the largest coal producing nation on earth. Welshcakes were traditionally made by the lady of the house hold for afternoon tea, for packed lunches for the children and as a particular favourite as a treat for the coal miner husbands. The welsh cake was the perfect size to slip into the pocket to nibble on for lunch as a reminder of home in the dark cold enviroment of the mines.

Now to taste a traditional welshcake is a rare treat unless you come to MamGu Welshcakes.
