Laver cakes are an essential part of a Welsh breakfast but can also be served as side dishes with roast meats. This quick and simple Laver Cake recipe is adapted from a recipe by Gilli Davies in her book A Taste of Wales.
100 grams (4-ounces) seaweed
25 grams (1-ounce) oatmeal
2 teaspoons bacon fat, or lard
Gather the ingredients.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the seaweed and oatmeal. Divide the mixture into 2 inch / 5cm round and 3/4 inch / 2cm thick patties.
Heat a heavy-based frying pan on the stove top. Add the fat to the pan and heat to hot but not burning. Slide the patties carefully into the hot fat a couple at a time and fry quickly for 2 - 3 minutes on each side.
Lift carefully from pan with a palette knife and lay onto kitchen paper to drain. Serve as part of a Welsh breakfast or as a side dish to roast meats.
