From a young age I had a passion for baking, and when I left my career in teaching due to ill health, I turned to baking as an aid to my recovery. From the family kitchen table, I set up and ran a successful local baking business, until in 2013, my husband and I spotted a gap in the market for delicious artisan brownies, and as they say the rest is history. Andrew and I now work together with a small local team, from commercial kitchens on the outskirts of Ely in Cambridgshire. When the ovens have been turned off and we have free time, you will probably find us enjoying coffee and cake with our daughter Lucy, or taking a country walk with our gorgeous cocker spaniel.
5 simple ingredients
5 simple ingredients ... that is how many we need to create our 'Great Taste Award' winning Signature brownie. It's from here that the rest of our delicious flavour combinations are developed. We believe that to bake the most delicious brownies we need to use the highest quality ingredients available to us. We use British sugar, full cream butter, British milled flour and only the finest Belgian cocoa and chocolate. Our free-range eggs come from our local egg farmer Alan, who has supplied us from the beginning. All our additional ingredients are sourced according to quality, and flavourings are natural. We do not believe in using additives or preservatives to extend the freshness of our brownies.
When I started the business, I was passionate that our brownies should taste the way my grandma's cakes tasted, fresh and delicious. A brownie should never need to last months - so we are proud of our short shelf life !! That said, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that all butter brownies last, if well stored, for longer than you may think. So, please do not hesitate to make an order to celebrate a birthday, or to pop under the Christmas tree this year. The recipient will really enjoying our delicious brownies.
