Hot Cross Buns and Simnel Cake

added 23rd March 2017


In preparation for Easter, our delicious hot cross buns and Simnel Cake are now available online or in our shops.

Simnel Cake is a traditional Easter Cake originally made for the Middle Sunday of Lent when the fast was relaxed for the day. The marzipan balls on the cake are meant to represent each of the apostles....although on a traditional full-size cake there would often only be 11, the missing ball signifying Judas. Our delicious cake is packed with fruit, topped with marzipan and glazed to finish. Slices of four are available online while individual slices are available in our shops.

Our moreish hot cross buns full of succulent dried fruit and delicious both cold or toasted, are available in our shops.
