Pussy Cat Cake
The English Baker blog has indeed been somewhat quiet for some time now. In fact, completely silent would be more accurate. But, The English Baker has not gone anywhere. I have not been involved in an unfortunate culinary accident with a whisk (not one that I am prepared to discuss here anyhow). Neither have I moved to Bermuda…The English Baker is alive and baking in Brussels, with all the necessary body parts in full working order.
Just a little overworked that’s all….
So, no more Weekly Bakes for the time being. However, do not despair, it is still possible to order all your favourite British breads and pastries baked to order. Just place your order one week in advance, and make an appointment to collect your order from The English Baker in Merode at a time that suits you.
Not only that, The English Baker will also be offering a selection of Seasonal Bakes throughout the year which can be ordered in advance. Sign up to follow The English Baker blog and receive the updates.
Finally, as definitive proof that The English Baker has indeed been slaving over a hot oven and not simply lying on the sofa with a mug of tea and a copy of Hello!, here is a selection of some of the Bespoke Cakes, Breads and Pastries ordered over the last few months. Feel free to leave a comment, by the way!

Well, by popular demand, those soft, gooey buns are back on the Weekly Bake menu. Not only the preserve of the inhabitants of Chelsea, Chelsea Buns
(aka Cinnamon Rolls) are pretty much at the top of The English Baker’s most asked for list. For newcomers to The English Baker blog, these coiled sweet bread rolls are stuffed with raisins, brown sugar and butter so when baked become golden brown, and super sticky. Delicious for a big week-end breakfast or just with a nice cup of tea. The English LOVE a good sticky bun and this one is about as sticky as they come.
So eat, drink and forget about that waistline – trust me, I’m saving you money, it’ll be autumn soon and you’ll need an extra layer to see you through those long winter months…
