The name of this recipe means ‘moist cake’ in Welsh. It is a simple, everyday cake recipe and a good standby. Currants were traditionally used, but raisins are now far more readily available. It can be made in the food processor.


  • 1 lb / 455 g plain flour
  • 1 scant tbsp baking powder


Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl. Rub in the fat, then add the sugar, nutmeg, eggs and enough liquid to give a soft consistency. Stir in the raisins, spoon into a greased 9 in / 23 cm
