Generally just known as Goosnargh, these aren't so much cakes as round, buttery biscuits, flavoured with caraway seeds and coriander, before being dredged in sugar.
They are unique to the Lancashire village near the Bowland Hills, and were once made in vast quantities for the Easter and Whitsun holidays. They are still available from the village post office. (Tel: 01772-865231)
