Where to Find the Best Welsh Cakes in Swansea

Updated: 11 December 2017

One of Wales’ national dishes, the Welsh Cake is a delicious griddle-cooked cake. Dotted with fruit and cut into small circles, before being cooked slowly until golden brown on a cast iron Bake Stone. Traditionally eaten warm and dusted with caster sugar, they are a real treat. Made the same way for hundreds of years, you cannot visit Wales without enjoying a few. Here’s our guide to the best places to find authentic Welsh Cakes in Swansea.
