I live in Wales and this is the nicest "pick" as we call them recipy nice and moist and my 2 boys enjoyed makeing them with me but I turned them thank you very much I'll use this one often.

i know nothing about bakestones. Nothing. I thought it was a cookie that you fry on the stove. Wrongo. Its more like a funky pancake. Truth be known, i didn't care for it much. And i've got alot...

Bakestones are really just a larger welsh cake. Eat with a cup of tea with your feet up.
