A lad at work brought in some Chorley cakes, found them to be very dull compared to an Eccles.

But would a buttered Chorley be as good as an unbuttered Eccles? I think not.

Having tried Chorleys, I think I prefer them to Eccles - which I find just a little too sweet for my palate. I did find Chorleys a bit dry - but Lumby's solution sorts that. :thumbs:

Welsh cakes are still the ones for me though - fantastic, straight out the pack.

(Their only drawback is that it requires a great effort of will, not to down the whole pack with my first brew!).

I'm distraught. All this talk of Chorley cakes sent me off to my usual shop. NONE!! Had to settle for four Eccles cakes. Which didn't last the day out. They are a bit like eating sweets.
