My grandma used to call these 'pressed fly cakes' from the appearance of the currants. A specialty from Manchester, England!
I got 16 out of this recipe, but i don't think they'll last long. watch the oven temperature, I had to turn mine down after 10 minutes to stop them burnng. - 14 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I actually haven't tried this recipe yet, I just wanted to know if the submitter could please comment and say what the recipe is for the pastry? This sounds like a recipe my grandmother used to make and when she passed away no one knew how to make this anymore. I would really love to try this recipe. - 22 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I use puff pastry. I buy a package of frozen puff pastry and it works a treat. Also I use brown sugar not white. - 26 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
