If you think Welsh food is simply based around lamb and leeks, then think again. Wales has a great reputation for baking wonderful cakes, buns and pancakes. The most famous cake is the fruity tea time treat of Bara Brith and this recipe comes from Gilli Davies. Gilli is the author of the renowned book of Welsh food, Flavours of Wales, published by Graffeg and was nominated for a Gourmand World Book Award in 2012.
