Something old, something new

Guess what! Eccles cakes have arrived at the market!
Wondering what on earth an eccles cake is? Wonder no more. Here they are, a cross between a butter tart, baklava, and raisin tart only made with currants. Oozing sugary buttery goodness, a traditional English treat. Sometimes called a fly's graveyard (because of the way they look, with the wee studs of fruit ) they are often paired with lancashire cheese but delicious, absolutely delicious by themselves.!

You can find them at the The Maritime Pasty Company booth on the west wall of the market. Pasty makers extraordinaire!
They have also newly introduced the London Cheese Cake. Mmmm.....hungry?.

  1. Mmmmm, eccles cakes are lovely and my Mum's favourite. Very similar to Banbury cakes which is where I'm from. Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross - ever heard the nursery rhyme?
