Quiet Baker: Busy Oven…

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!

The Weekly Bake is back…a little late, but not forgotten.

This week, Comfort reigns in The English Baker’s kitchen…

Cheddar & Bacon Loaves

So this Weekly Bake sees the return of an English Baker favourite, Cheddar and Bacon Bread.   Perfect warmed in the oven ready to dunk in your soup on a cold wintry evening or, for the desk-bound, this is a great lunch-box bread. By the way, kids love this too…

Malted Chocolate Fairy Cake

If that’s not enough comfort for you, how about a Malted Chocolate Fairy Cake or two?  Made with a large spoonful of Ovaltine, melted chocolate and full fat milk, and topped off with Maltesers – this is basically a bedtime drink.  Just add pyjamas and a fluffy blanket for ultimate relaxation…
