Today at Spa Terminus The Little Bread Pedlar was selling Eccles Cakes. I got there when they had just come out of the oven and were too hot to be sold. I reserved two and by the time I went back to collect them ten minutes later the rest had almost all gone. Light, buttery pastry, quality dried fruit and a not too sweet filling puts them up there with the best. I, for one, hope they will be a regular featue. It certainly made up for the disappointment of arriving too late for croissants today - all sold out before mid-day at the bakery.
