Recipe of the Week: Real Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

Real Bakewell Tart

Formerly known as Bakewell Pudding, this tart was apparently created by a cook working at the Rutland Arms Hotel in Bakewell, Derbyshire.

The cook was making jam tarts, but used puff pastry by mistake. He added some other leftover ingredients, and the Bakewell Tart was born!

Recipe of the Week: Bobbing Apples Cake

Bobbing apples

Who remembers bobbing apples from childhood?

This was always one of the games at my birthday parties until one of my friend’s got too worried that it would ‘ruin her hairdo’ – we were 11!!

This clever, seasonal and scrumptious cake pays homage to this classic game.

What is bobbing for apples?

In fact, it began as a British courting ritual, popular among young ladies and their potential beaus.

Peanut Butter & Popcorn Layer Cake

Peanut Butter & Popcorn Layer Cake

 

I recently baked this for one of our customers as a thank you for their business and it went down a storm.

It really is super-easy to make but looks and tastes spectacular.

I’ve shared it with you before, but just in case you missed it, I’ll share it again.

Afternoon Tea Week

Afternoon Tea Week

3 Favourite Bakes


Pretty china, freshly brewed tea and a few delectable bakes. Afternoon tea is a joy to behold.

It’s at its very best in glamorous surroundings (we had a fabulous tea in a Victorian theatre for our wedding) but can be held anywhere.

Choose a cosy corner, put a tablecloth on the table, get out your favourite crockery and treat friends or family to some delicious bakes along with a hot cuppa.
