The method is the same - replace ordinary flour with either ground almonds or dessicated coconut and sugar with sweetener. Also reduce dried fruit which is high in carbs.
6 oz flour (I use 4 oz ground almonds + either 2 oz self raising flour or 2 oz plain flour + baking powder)
3 oz butter
Handful dried fruit (I prefer sultanas)
Sweetener to taste (I use 4 - 6 dessertspoons powdered sweetener - Canderel or Splenda)
! egg beaten
Milk if the mixture is stiff.
Oil to fry (I use the spray-on low calorie olive oil)
Mix the flours and salt together. Rub the butter into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add sweetener and fruit, then the beaten egg. I usually find this makes a dough that is firm enough, but if it is too stiff add a little milk. Roll out the dough on a floured board. Cut into portions using a cookie cutter. Heat a frying pan. Spray with oil or add a dessertspoon of olive oil. Fry the Welsh Cakes.
They are delicious hot with butter and also good cold, or reheated for 30 seconds in a microwave. I usually make double this recipe which lasts me for a week - in spite of the family! Enjoy.
