Eccless cakes are a traditional English recipe dating back to 1793. They are filled pastries with sweet fillings, resembling small pastry pockets.

The name “Eccles cakes” originated from a town named Eccles in Manchester Country. Interestingly, the world’s largest Eccles cake was created at the Salford Food and Drink Festival in England.

Making Eccless cake involves 3 steps: First, prepare the dough by combining butter, flour, bread crumbs, lemon, and cold water. Then, create the filling by mixing currants, sugar, lemon zest, orange zest, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and diced dried papaya. Fill the dough with this mixture and bake.

Enhance the flavor by adding butter extract to the pastries. If you’re out of butter extract, explore butter extract substitutes for alternatives.
