  1. Add the flour, baking powder and diced cold butter to a food processor and blitz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. 
  2. Add the chopped spring onions and chives to the food processor and quickly blitz again. 
  3. Whisk the eggs and milk together. Add them to the food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a dough.
  4. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll the dough out to 1.5cm thickness. Use a 5cm round cutter to cut out 34 little circles, gathering the dough off-cuts back together until all the dough has been used up.
  5. Heat the frying pan over a low-medium heat and cook the Welsh cakes in the dry pan in batches of six. This should give you plenty of room to flip the cakes over and will ensure they cook evenly. Cook for 6-8 minutes each side, until deep golden but not burnt
