A totally delicious and traditional British cake - 1793 James Birch’s shop on the corner of Vicarage Road in Eccles began selling small, flat, raisin-filled cakes. They sold, quite literally, like hot cakes! This is my Grandmother's recipe, which ,compared to the original, holds a more varied dried fruit. Best to double the recipe as you will never have enough to satisfy everyone.
