Credit and thanks to Sue for this delightful Welsh Cake recipe. 

Sue has a very handsome Rayburn range cooker, here is her tip - "I usually have my Rayburn range cooker on mark 2 for this, it is best to try one first to get the position on the hotplate correct! Enjoy!"

Sue doesn't use a simmering liner, but you could try one if you have an Aga range cooker!
