Flaky biscuits from the English town of Eccles (Eccles cake) — the perfect complement to a Cup of tea. The original recipe for these muffins with raisins, but I really like the version with prunes and walnuts
You will need:
– 1 package puff pastry;
– prunes, pitted 150 gr;
– walnuts — 50 gr;
– brown cane sugar for sprinkling;
– cognac — 2 tbsp.;
– 1 egg yolk;
cinnamon – 0.5 tsp.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Finely chop prunes and soak in brandy, walnuts and finely chop.
Puff pastry roll out the layer of 0.5 cm and cut to shape or glass circles with a diameter of 10 cm, Place on the middle of the mug with a spoon the prunes and nuts, sprinkle with cinnamon, fold the dough in half pie desipite the edges, flip over to the link line in the middle. Slightly press down to make a flat bun. Egg yolk brush the top, sprinkle with brown sugar and make three diagonal cuts.
Bake for 15 minutes.
