    Gingerbee's Note:

    My first encounter with these lovely little cakes was in Bristol, England almost 20 years ago. They were so delicious and light and different than what I had been accustomed to for dessert. But with a cup of tea, these little treaties will soon be your favorites too! I hope you will try them just once.

      Easy to make and delicious to eat. Prepared these for a tea party and they were enjoyed by all. Thank you, Gingerbee, for sharing. And also thanks to Hoekside for the tip about the Turbinada sugar - a great sweet finishing touch!

      A little bit of 'home'. Great Eccles. I like to sprinkle a bit of Turbinada suger on the top of mine after the milk. Any way its delicious. I was born in Guildford, Surrey and now have lived in Canada for 40 plus years. :-)
