Ww2 Recipe: The Welsh Cakes (a.k.a. Carrot Pancakes)
Ww2 Recipe The Welsh Cakes aka Carrot Pancakes

"To deal with the sometimes extreme food supply shortages due to the sinking of import ships by Nazi during World War 2, the UK Ministry of Food instituted a system of rationing. To buy most rationed items each person had to register at chosen shops. The shopkeeper was provided with enough food for registered customers. One of the popular as a result of the rations recipe is Welsh cakes. These are a cross between a cookie, a scone, and a pancake but they are truly unlike any of these things when it comes to taste and texture. "
