These North England treats are called cakes but are really pastries with a sweet and spicy fruit mixture inside.
My Mum used to make these, I do too but Mum used to add a bit of chopped mint to them, realy special, my husband loves them too. - 11 Jul 2012
I made these for a friend, who assured me they were great. - 28 Dec 2017
Fab recipe,turn out exactly as they should. For those who haven't made them before, when you turn them over to roll them, only give a few little gentle rolls, they should not be too big, and don't worry if some of the currants show through a little, makes them more authentic! - 26 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
