The Welsh Cake, a classic of Patagonia
Everyone usually attributed their origin to the country of Wales, but we must tell them that it is ours, it is Argentina. The Welsh Torta was born in Patagonia, in the communes of Gaiman and Trevelin back in 1850.
History tells that it was the first Welsh settlers who that originated this recipe. In the face of a lack of resources and the need to maintain live their culture, the great Welsh pastry companies displayed their creativity, giving rise to this cake.
The idea was to be able to create a cake with the few foods they had and that will last a few days. The result was this delicious cake with two fundamental properties: a long durability and high caloric value.
The recipe of the Welsh Cake today travels the world and is considered one of the most favorite delicacies. They are famous in tea houses, large restaurants and in regional houses of the most touristic cities.
