There are few things more quintessentially British than an Eccles Cake. They are quite simply a great British institution. I absolutely adore them!! This recipe was created by the Michelin starred chef Marcus Waring, especially for the Great British Menu competition. The pastry takes a little time, but it really is worth taking the time and effort to achieve that perfect flaky buttery deliciousness. Of course if it really is too much trouble you can substitute store bought puff or rough puff pastry. Go on treat yourself to a taste of Great Britain with your cup of Earl Grey tea! Timings do not include chilling times!
