Eccles cakes

The quickest way is to buy Puff pastry ready made – home made rough puff pastry is a complete waste of everyone’s time.

200 g ready made puff pastry


25 g soft brown sugar

100 g currants

50 g mixed peel

½ tsp mixed spice

½ tsp ground nutmeg

Grated Lemon rind

25 g butter

Milk and sugar to glaze


Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7.

Roll out the pastry into an oblong and cut into 8 squares.

Mix together all the filling ingredients and place a spoonful onto each of the squares.

Brush the edges of the pastry with milk and fold the edges into the centre to seal them.

Turn over the cakes and roll out to form a circle and until the fruit just shows under the pastry. Make three slits in the top and brush with sugar and milk.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until crisp then cool on a wire rack.
