Most people know that I love cooking and write about it - preparing an electronic book - along with my wine-making efforts, so Kindles at the ready! This afternoon I am baking Eccles Cakes. They derive from the town of Eccles in Lancashire and the earliest date I can find is around 1760. All my sisters enjoy baking, too, and some are champion cooks, such as Eve (pictured below).
Later, I will post the recipe, which is so simple.
