Welsh Recipes: Teisen Lap
8 oz plain flour...
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of nutmeg
4 oz margarine (a mixture of lard and butter was traditionally used)
7 oz sugar
8 oz currants
Pre-heat the oven 180oC, gas mark 4. Grease and flour a shallow tin.
Sieve together the flour, baking powder and nutmeg.
Add the sugar and fruit. Add the beaten eggs and mix well. You want a soft, dropping consistency so add as much milk as is needed.
Put the mixture in the tin and cook for 20 minutes before lowering the temperature to 170oC, gas mark 3, for another 40 minutes or until firm.
Cool, remove from tin and sprinkle with sugar. Store in an airtight container.See more
