Details: The Eccles Cake is a traditional product, which is believed to have originated in the town of Eccles, approximately five miles from our bakery. The Edmonds family recipe and method of manufacture has been handed down through generations. Our Eccles Cakes are handmade and consist of a mixture of the finest Vostizza currants, raisins, butter and sugar enclosed in a shell of flaky, buttery pastry. The cake is round and fairly flat in appearance and they are packed in traditional packaging. The manufacture of Eccles Cakes is very labour intensive as each one is made by hand.

Although no one can be certain of the date that Eccles Cakes were first manufactured, it is clear their history stretches back over three centuries. Historians are fairly certain that the origins of these pastries can be traced to the town of Eccles, formerly within the Lancashire boundary, but now a suburb of Manchester.

The word “Eccles” means ‘church’ and is a derivative of the Greek ‘Ecclesia’, which means an assembly. Therefore it is reasonable to assume that the town takes its name from the old church, constructed in 1111AD, around which it grew.

Each year during the passing centuries a Service was held at the church to celebrate its construction. This became known as the “Eccles Wakes” and was followed by a fair where food and drink could be purchased in abundance, including the ever popular Eccles Cake.

Our Cakes are individually made from the finest ingredients obtainable in order to re-capture the authentic appearance and flavour of a Real Lancashire Eccles Cake.
