Happy St David’s Day everyone! Or as we say in Wales, Hapus Dydd Gwyl Dewi! We have many fantastic traditions here in Wales when it comes to St David’s Day including flying our Welsh flags proudly, wearing daffodils and leeks and singing the national anthem and other traditional Welsh hymns, be it at home or at an Eisteddfod. 

However, one of the most popular ways to celebrate the day of our patron saint is to bake a delicious batch of traditional Welsh cakes. If you have never had a Welsh cake before, you have most certainly missed out! These little bits of heaven are made using simply ingredients, but the flavour you get from the mixed spices and the raisins/sultanas are hard to beat! Here are a few links to recipes and images of Wales' fantastic home grown baked treats!


Here is a fantastic Jamie Oliver recipe for Welsh cakes, with added cream and strawberries, delicious!


Another recipe for traditional Welsh cakes comes from the fantastic people at All Recipes, don’t those welsh cakes look tasty!


And finally, an image from Visit Wales, taking their recipe right from the heart of Welsh history!


From everyone here at Cooker Spare Parts, Happy St David's Day! Hapus Dydd Gwyl Dewi!

Here at Cooker Spare Parts, we pride ourselves on stocking a fantastic range of cooker spares that will have your cooker back to its old self in no time at all. One thing we think we are smashing at (excuse the pun!) is stocking a great range of oven door glass for a variety of appliances. Whether it is for your top oven or main oven door, the inner or outer door glass, or if you have a Belling, Hotpoint, Cannon or any other appliance, you are sure to find the perfect replacement for your oven glass here!

So why is the oven door glass on your appliance so important? Not only does it act as a layer of insulation for your cooker, but it also allows you to see in to the oven cavity when your food is cooking, which is pretty important if you want to stop your food from burning! As you can imagine we get a lot of people coming to us who have a cracked piece of glass or a piece has chipped off which could lead to the glass cracking, and we don’t want that to happen! A simple replacement of the cooker glass on your oven door will have your cooker back to its old self in no time at all!

Some reasons for damaged cooker door glass are said to be resting a heavy objects such as oven dishes or baking trays on the glass, which can cause it to stress and long term and eventually could cause it to shatter. It is also important that you keep your cooker clean as any dirt on the glass may cause it to weaken as well. A full list of cooker cleaning products can be found here.

So if you have a damaged piece of oven glass fitted to your cooker door and want to replace it, visit the cooker door glass section of our website here.
