Welsh Meal

A very rustic meal today from Wales, the country that is part of the United Kingdom or Great Britain. I was careful to pick dishes that are Welsh in origin and not from the other regions of the UK. Welsh rarebit or rabbit is a simple melted cheese on bread recipe that I picked to build this meal.


Cheddar cheese is melted with very few ingredients and poured over toasted slices of bread. The bread is then toasted again before it is served. Some regions serve a fried egg on the top. I baked a loaf of whole wheat English muffin bread to make the rabbit. I paired this with an onion cake that I baked and served in my cast iron pan. The onion cake is made of potatoes and onions baked in layers with butter. Needless to day, my daughter loved it. The teisen lap or Welsh moist cake was delicious. This was the first time I baked a cake on a dinner plate. You cannot get more rustic than that! The cake is filled with raisins and stayed moist for 3 days. My father enjoyed it a lot.


No new ingredients for this meal but like I mentioned above I had never baked anything on a dinner plate. The meal was very filling.

As they say in Welsh, Mwynhewch Eich Bwyd!

Here are the recipes for the dishes on the menu
And for dessert
