Wakes Cakes
Recipe type: Baking
  • 8oz plain flour
  • 6oz butter
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • milk (to mix)
  • A good cupful mixed dried fruit (about 4oz)
  • 3 - 4oz white sugar
  1. Mix flour and salt, rub in butter, add sugar and dried fruit. You can more or less dried fruit according to taste - I opt for more. I usually cut down on the sugar though, to 3oz, rather than 4. If you have a sweet tooth, stick to 4oz.
  2. Mix to a stiff dough with beaten egg, add a little more milk if necessary
  3. Knead the dough lightly, then roll to the thickness of a coin (about an eighth of an inch).
  4. Cut into rounds the size of a small saucer - approx. 5" in diameter
  5. Bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.
  6. Cool, then sprinkle with sugar
  7. Enjoy! Will keep for a few weeks if wrapped in foil.
