These are quite irresistible, especially when served warm. Currants usually predominate but these have sultanas and grated apple, as they make the filling moister. Always sprinkle the tops of the Eccles cakes with demerara sugar for extra crunch.
Roll the pastry out to 5mm/¼ inch thick on a lightly floured work surface. Loosely roll the pastry around the rolling pin and unroll it on to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Place in the fridge to rest and relax for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the sultanas, currants and mixed peel in a bowl with the lemon and orange juice and zest. Add the soft brown sugar and spices and mix well. Melt the butter in a small pan and add to the fruit mix. Beat the eggs together just enough to combine the yolks with the whites. Weigh out 75g of the beaten egg and add to the mix (reserve the remaining egg for egg wash later). Add the grated apples and mix well. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Remove the pastry from the fridge and, using a 12.5cm/5 inch pastry cutter, cut out 12 discs. Put a large tablespoonful of the filling into the centre of each one, then bring the edges of the pastry into the centre, tucking them under eachother to make sure the parcel is very firm and no filling is showing. The Eccles cakes should be round and firm. Place smooth-side up on a lined baking tray, 2.5cm/1 inch apart. Brush the tops with the reserved beaten egg, then pick them up and dip them one at a time into the demerara sugar. Only the tops should be coated in the sugar. Make 2 slits about 1cm/1/2 inch long and 5mm/¼ inch apart on the top of each cake for the steam to escape. Place in the oven and bake for 20–25 minutes, until the cakes are golden brown. To check they are done, turn one of them over and make sure the pastry is cooked underneath. Leave to cool on a wire rack. They are really good when they are warm but do not serve straight from the oven, as the filling will be extremely hot.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
