Cakes and Scones
We have never lost the enthusiasm to make a difference to our customer. Our friendly staff are willing to help in any way possible.
We pride ourselves on our baking, Carol, who opened the Tearooms in 1994 always wanted to bake our own cakes and that still stands today. Now youngest daughter Anna, bakes all the cakes and scones for the Tearooms, Carol now bakes all the pastries and savoury items for lunch menu, where possible food is sourced in Yorkshire, our free range eggs from Wensleydale Eggs in Finghall only 4 miles away, ensuring quality and accountability of all our products.
Using seasonal fruits and vegetables, grown from our own garden or grown locally. Father, Ian, used to farm the estate now has a vegetable patch in the garden and regularly brings fresh rhubarb, red currants or blackberries, the list goes on, for us to create something yummy for the cake counter.
Specialising in home baking we use recipes from traditional to the unusual, like our Wild Flower Honey Cake. Our baking is known throughout the country, we have even sent recipes worldwide. With over 20 years' experience, our recipe collection is over 100 different types of cakes and pastries, we collected some of our favourites to create our very own recipe book ‘in their footsteps’ to celebrate our 25th year, 2019. Available from the Tearooms and to post.
Daily we have between 6 to 12 different cakes to choose from, whether it's a Belgium Chocolate Raspberry Truffle or the classic Blueberry & Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Icing, we have plenty to tempt that sweet tooth. At the end of 2018 we released our own recipe book, ‘in their footsteps’ to celebrate our 25th year of opening the Tearooms and homebaking for 25 years.
