Week Twenty – Mary Berry’s Eccles Cakes

Mary Berry's Eccles CakesWell, I am feeling better still this week and wanted to try something a bit more challenging so, I looked through Mary Berry’s baking bible and decided on the Eccles Cake recipe.

I have never made these before so it was a bit of a venture into the unknown as to what the outcome would be.
Mary’s recipe instructions are very detailed so I set off reasonably confidently on Sunday morning.

Eventually I was at the construction stage and that was the fun part! I cut out my circles in the pastry and put a table spoon of filling in each one, wet the edges and folded the pastry in to meet and seal, turned them over, shaped them into rounds , flattened them slightly and cut the 3 slots in them.

Here are the results and I must admit, they tasted rather good! ? I seem to be back in the baking saddle and I am now looking through Mary’s book to see what I fancy making next week!
