Hmmm.  Eccles cake and tea

Hmmm. Eccles cake and tea

Eccles cakes are standard fare in England but they are unknown in Canada. They are little round pockets of flaky pastry stuffed full of currents. You have to be a raisin lover to enjoy these and a cup of tea is a requisite to temper the tooth-aching sweetness of all those dried fruits. Normally, I am not much of a raisin person but I must say that since we left home, there have only been two baked goods that I have eaten that I have thought worth the calories – French baguettes and Eccles cakes. When I get back to the land of internet and ovens, I am going to google me an Eccles cake recipe and try it out. If anyone has a good recipe or tips on making them, please let me know.
