This is a pastry from Banbury in Oxfordshire, England, a town whose name is known to many from the old rhyme ‘Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross’.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
375g frozen puff pastry, thawed
60g raisins
75g currants
95g mixed glace peel, chopped
110g sugar
1 large lemon, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon ground allspice
125ml water
2 tablespoons plain flour
beaten egg and sugar, to glaze

Method

  1. Roll out pastry thinly and cut into rounds about 8 cm in diameter. Combine remaining ingredients (except for glaze) in a saucepan and stir over low heat until thick. Allow to cool.
  2. Dampen edges of half the pastry rounds and place about 2 teaspoons filling in centre of each. Top with remaining pastry rounds. Press edges firmly together and decorate with tines of a fork. Glaze with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Place on baking trays and bake in a preheated hot oven for 15–20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
