Never heard of such a thing!!!!

Somebody asked Jen for a Cornflake Cake yesterday. I had never heard of such a thing, I thought of these.

Jen put me straight, telling me it was more of a tart than a cake, so I hit the internet doing some research. Once done, I priced them up, only using Kellogs of course and came up with this.

Within just 30 minutes, we had 42 tarts ordered. How much pastry!!!!! was my first thought and how many cornflakes??  We did it, it was an early start but we managed to make 51!!!



Every evening we check our refrigerator and take stock of what is left. I have to say, the refrigerator is looking rather forlorn, so it seems I have my work cut out tomorrow.




I am hoping to have the following ready for you tomorrow…..


Cornish Pasties £2.20 each
Coronation Chicken Slices £2 each
Cheese, Leek & Potato Pasties £2 each
Bacon Wraps £1.50 each
Biscoff Brownies £1.50
Lemon Bars £1.50
Salted Caramel Apple Squares £1.50
Rocky Road £1.25
4 inch cakes – Victoria Sponge, Carrot Cake, Coffee & Walnut Cake, all are £5.00 each


Mystic Jens Premonition

I’m normally very quiet when I’m plotting a new recipe, and so it was  when Jen told me she predicts something new yesterday.

And, here it is………

At the base we have a vanilla shortbread crust, this is topped with an apple and cinnamon filling. Finished off with a sweet streusel.


22nd January 2019

Wednesday we will have on offer……

Salted Caramel Apple Bar.
Cornish Pasties £2.20
Cheese, Leek and Potato Pasties £2.00
Bacon, Cheese and Tomato Wraps £1.50
Salted Caramel Apple Bar £1.50
Chunky Cheesecake Brownie £1.50
Rocky Road £1.25
Millionaire Shortbread £1.50
4 inch Carrot Cakes £5.00

Thursday I have an order for Individual Pork Pies (£1.00 each), let me know if you would like any too. In addition I will have some 4 inch Victoria Sponges (£5.00 each).

Friday, I have Coronation Chicken slices on offer as well as individual 4inch Coffee & Walnut sponges £5.00 each).


So here was my experiment, a brownie and a cheesecake fused together. It almost ticked all the boxes. The taste is lovely, it looks lovely but I like my brownies a little more “oomphy”. I am going to make them a bit thicker, the same depth as our Triple Chocolate Brownie.

Tomorrow, we will sell our “prototype” brownie for just £1 per slice. Thereafter, We will bring them in line with our Biscoff and Triple Chocolate brownies at £1.50 per slice which will be thicker in size.

A Varied Week

That was a busy week just gone, we had everything from Pork Pies through to Vegan, gluten and dairy free cakes and Spanish cake.

Next week, we will have our usual things, we see our Biscoff Brownies were a huge success. So far, we have 2 requests and they are for Iced Fingers and Garlic and Coriander Focaccias.

You may remember the 4inch vegan cake I baked last week? With this in mind I will be baking for other 4 inch sponges, not vegan but regular sponges, Victoria, Carrot, Coffee and Walnut and Chocolate Cake at £5 each.

We also have a new business landline, should you prefer to order in a more traditional way – 01291 621607.

A Request

So we’ve had a couple of request for filled baguettes. We would like to find out how much interest there will be before we go headlong in to new refrigeration and all the malachy of keeping different ingredients.

Then there is the question of what fillings we provide without going mad and filling our house up with all sorts of weird creations.

So, comment yes or no on the Facebook page, if yes, flavour suggestions please.
