History of Eccles Cakes

Outlawed in Eccles England in 1653 by the Puritan's under Oliver Cromwell's protectorate - they were considered too damn good, frivolous and secretly pagan!

Created in the township of Eccles (whose name means 'Church') in celebration of religious holiday feasts, the puritanical residents and visitors alike in the Lancashire settlement were jailed if found eating a delicious Eccles Cake!

Now legal, today's Eccles Cakes are meant to be shared with good company. Please don't forget to serve with warm conversation and a nice hot cuppa tea!

Some nicknames included

Dead Fly Pies - Fly Cemeteries

Squashed Fly Biscuits & Church Cakes

So delicious with a bowl of steaming porridge with your afternoon tea or just by themselves as a simple dessert - you'll love them as a luxurious alternative to danish pastry - cut in wedges and serve with your favorite ice cream
