Chorley Cakes are very similar to other regional cakes such as Eccles Cakes, Banbury Cakes and Hot Cross Buns (in as much as they were a sweet pastry combined with dried fruit) and traditionally were baked for religious festivals. Chorley cakes are flattened, currant-filled cakes made with unsweetened shortcrust pastry and associated with the town of Chorley in Lancashire. Significantly less sweet than Eccles cake, and commonly eaten with butter and a slice of Lancashire cheese.
