How to make our Eccles Cakes Recipe 

1 Preheat oven to 200˚C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine currants, orange juice and rind, butter, cinnamon, sugar, mixed spices and nutmeg in a bowl.

2 Cut 4 x 10cm rounds from each sheet of pastry. Place 1 tbsp of currant mixture into centre. Bring edges up together and seal. Place cakes onto a lightly floured surface, right side down and flatten gently with a rolling pin until currants start to pop to surface of pastry. Turn over and make 3 slits on cakes.

3 Place cakes onto prepared baking tray. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden and crisp.
