Product information


Partially Rehydrated Currants

Here at Whitworths we're passionate about bringing you the very best that nature has to offer.
After careful consideration we selected the South African Zante Mini Currant as the perfect baking currant. Not only they seedless but they are smaller in size which means they spread more evenly throughout your bake. We add a little extra moisture after drying to ensure they are the juiciest out there.

Pack Size: 350g

  • Small & seedless for perfect bakes
  • Suitable for vegetarians



Partially Rehydrated Currants (95%), Sunflower Oil, Preservative: Potassium Sorbate


  • Store in a cool dry place.
  • Once opened, reseal, refrigerate and consume within 2 weeks.

Eccles Cakes
150g Whitworths Currants
40g unsalted butter, softened
50g demerara sugar
75g dried cranberries
500g block ready made puff pastry
1 tbsp milk

Ready... Steady... Bake
Preheat your oven to 200°C / Fan 180ºC / Gas 6, then lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
Melt the butter in a small pan over a low heat then add 40g sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves.
Remove from the heat and stir in the currants and cranberries, then set aside to cool.
Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, into an oblong (approximately 450mm x 550mm) and 5mm thick then cut out 18 circles using a 10cm plain round cutter.
Place spoonful of the cooled fruit in the centre of the pastry circle then brush the edges with a little cold water.
Fold the edges into the centre and pinch together to enclose the filling then turn over and cut two small slits in the top of each.
Brush with milk, sprinkle with the remaining sugar then place onto the baking sheets. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack until cool, then serve and enjoy!
