Eccles Cake Mince Pies

Eccles Cake Recipe

Growing up, Christmas was the same event year in, year out. The same meal, equally identical decorations and mince pies indistinguishable from one another. That’s not to say that any part of what was dished up was disagreeable, but change helps keep occasions exciting.
