May’s Recipe: Eccles Cake


Grandma was no northerner (she was a Hampshire Lass) but that didn’t stop her from cooking the best Yorkshire puddings or Eccles cakes. When I had the job of clearing her freezer after she passed away there was a batch of these uncooked and frozen in a plastic bag. M got in trouble because he baked and ate the last one! Oooo – just realised that I have done exactly the same and there are a couple in my freezer at home. Now wishing this was tea time rather than lunch time at work!

tip: Puff pastry – buy it.
