Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Singing Hinny.

When I was a little girl my Mum had one of those Bero cookbooks that everyone had and I was obsessed with making Singing Hinny just because the name always made me laugh, I had absolutely no idea what it was! Anyway we never did make it and for some strange reason it popped into my head the other day and I decided to look and see what it was.

Turns out it is similar to Welsh cakes and is a kind of scone type dough that is cooked on the hob. The reason it is called Singing Hinny is that it kind of makes a sizzling noise when cooking, hence the singing!

What first turned out just a novelty named recipe is actually very tasty, I enjoyed it with a fresh fruit salad for breakfast.
