Happy St David’s Day

{Eat Little Bird / Chelsea Fuss}

I’m only a quarter Welsh but it’s a little part I hold dear. It was actually light when I left the office at 5.30 this evening so spring has most definitely sprung. And not a moment too soon!

Ps – I don’t eat my Welsh Cakes with jam as in this photo. Instead, I think they’re best gobbled up as fresh as possible spread with real butter. Make your own using this recipe (although my Great Nanny Bessie’s recipe uses currants rather than sultanas. She’s the Mum in this lovely black and white photo from our family archive). If you haven’t tried them before you must – they’re delish!
