I have made Welsh cakes for years, and have even made them in a tent. Make a batch and take some to your new neighbours. A great way to break the ice.

Accurate measurements of ingredients are not important with this recipe. I usually throw it together without scales, as you cant go far wrong with any mix of these simple ingredients.
