DescriptionEdit

"Pice ar y maen" are slightly different from all other girdle (or griddle) cakes and scones because they are a little firmer, these are always known as 'Welsh cakes' whether they are served in Wales or anywhere else. They were originally served to cold, tired and hungry travellers, on their arrival at an inn, while waiting for supper.
