I first experienced welsh cakes in Scotland - I know, hilarious, right?

Clearly anyone serving me that was the spawn of the devil and suffered
the wrath of my kevin-like flounces.
Ive been shopping
various supermarkets of late and haven't noticed any on the shelves so I
thought "Blow it, I'll make my own", especially when I had learned that
Jamie Oliver had one on his website. I mean if that boy can make them, surely I can, right?
