Eccles Cakes

Eccles Cakes. Made these for my dad for fathers day and they turned out great! I used 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead of the ones suggested, did not use raisins or brandy, bought 2 peppperidge farm puff pastry sheets instead of making it from scratch, and baked them for 15 minutes at 425 rather than for 20 at 375. I made a lot of changes but they were so much easier to make this way!

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.
