Chorley Cakes are very similar to other regional cakes such as Eccles Cakes, Banbury Cakes and Hot Cross Buns (in as much as they were a sweet pastry combined with dried fruit) and traditionally were baked for religious festivals. Chorley cakes are flattened, currant-filled cakes made with unsweetened shortcrust pastry and associated with the town of Chorley in Lancashire. Significantly less sweet than Eccles cake, and commonly eaten with butter and a slice of Lancashire cheese.

Eccles Cakes

Eccles Cakes. Made these for my dad for fathers day and they turned out great! I used 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead of the ones suggested, did not use raisins or brandy, bought 2 peppperidge farm puff pastry sheets instead of making it from scratch, and baked them for 15 minutes at 425 rather than for 20 at 375. I made a lot of changes but they were so much easier to make this way!
