Rated: The St John Eccles Cake.

St John Eccles Cake

Currantly one of the best in the biz

What? A Currant-stuffed pocket of sugared Puff Pastry – almost as good as ol’ Granny Hog’s version (not that I’m biased… ahem).

On a serious note, rarely do shop-bought Eccles Cakes taste this decent: the filling was so thick with fruit it had practically turned into Fudge (with very nice nutmeggy notes to spice things up).

The Pastry was super crisp too – just as it should be with Eccles

Where? This proud specimen came from the St John Bakery cubbyhole at Maltby Street (same place I got that outrageous Doughnut)

How Much? £2.50

Rating? 7/10

Ain’t got a granny to make one for you? Then this is the next best thing…
