  • A light sponge topping on a delicious raspberry jam, supported by a short pastry base. This Bakewell earned the Because I Like It cafe a lot of 5-star reviews.
  • Is it a loaf or is it a cake? Moist and tasty with a lighter texture than most walnut loaves, we replaced our original banana loaf with this cake. The positive feedback we have had from those who originally enjoyed the banana loaf made the change all the more worthwhile.
  • Made with whole oranges and orange oil, this chocolate cake hits the taste buds like a certain chocolate orange ball and a famous ‘is it a cake or a biscuit’ orange cake. It’s popular with adults and children alike, who can’t believe that it is both gluten and dairy free.  
  • A marriage made in Heaven, this coffee and walnut cake is all you’d expect from this teatime favourite.  
  • Oaty, chewy and moist, made with gluten free oats and both ground and crystallised ginger, this popular flapjack won a gold star at the Guild of Fine Foods Great Taste Awards in 2018.
  • Naturally gluten free, this ever-so-moist lemon drizzle cake hits you with a blast of sharp lemon and the sweetness of the crusty drizzle. This cake won 2 gold stars at the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste awards in 2017 Great Taste Awards 2017 - 2 Star
  • This light, yet moist orange and almond sponge cake is made utilising whole fresh oranges and plenty of almonds. This cake won 2 gold stars at the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste awards in 2018 Great Taste Awards 2018 - 2 Star  
  • This is a tart that people have made bus trips just to enjoy in our Bakewell cafe. A favourite with Nigel’s dad, we present this tart with love and many happy memories of a special man.
  • Streusel means mixed up and the delicious pecan and cinnamon crumble topping is mixed up to perfection. ‘Glued’ to a shortcake type base with a sultana filling, this cake combines, not only lovely flavours, but also contrasts in texture from the softer shortcake base to the crunchy crumble topping and the slightly chewy and moist filling between.
  • Satisfyingly moist, oaty and chewy this creamy-tasting flapjack is filling and tasty.
