Now, “[y]ou too can make [Ann Romney’s] famous Welsh cakes!” tweeted Sarah Haley, Romney’s press secretary, on Thursday. She included a photo of Romney’s own recipe card that reads: "From the kitchen of Ann Romney."
The recipe for the Welsh cakes is adopted from Romney’s grandmother, although Romney has said she's tweaked it. Romney is the granddaughter of a Welsh coal miner, something she speaks about often on the campaign trail. During the Olympics in London, she took a news crew with her to Wales for an interview staged at a Welsh pub to highlight her roots.
The recipe tweeted on Thursday is detailed and clearly made for sharing, a trait shared with other recipes Romney has shared such as the recipe for M&M Cookies she submitted to Family Circle magazine’s Presidential Bake-off contest.
Garrett Jackson, Romney’s personal assistant, tweeted a photo of Romney at the skillet making her signature treat last month.
