Summer, roll on Autumn!

It's been a really busy summer for us at Bittersweet Bakers! Not only did we bake like crazy but we have been up to super exciting businessy stuff too! Some of which I can share now, some will have to wait for later..

Firstly, if you are looking for a place to get your Bittersweet Bakers fix immediately we are providing lovely goodies to munch on for the super cool people at: Dose Espresso in Smithfield and The Espresso Room in Bloomsbury!

If you haven't been to either, I really can't encourage you enough to go. Not only do they both make incredibly good coffee, they are really lovely people and supporting your local artisan coffee bar is really good for everyone. You get better coffee, better service and promote small business. And even better, big business (Starbucks, et al.) gets a few less pounds in their insanely deep pockets. Ahem.

This has been a long time coming but I haven't taken the decision lightly to do wholesale cookies and brownies for the cafes in London. I haven't wanted to put our fine, handmade baked goods in any old cafe. I want only to provide treats for cafe owners who really care about the quality of their product, how it's served and your overall experience. Dose Espresso and The Espresso Room fit the bill perfectly. I do hope you go and please, tell them I sent you!

On sale there now are Double Chocolate Brownies, Walnut Blondies, Guinness and Ginger Cake, Banana Coconut Cake, Anzac Biscuits, Cheesecake Brownies and my favourite, Seasonal Fruit Crumble Cake.

Our recipe for Chocolate Cinnamon Buns published in the new Green & Blacks cookbook is still going strong and as Autumn draws near, they are the perfect antidote to the chilly weather blues.

For the UK version:

For the US version:

As this is going to be an action packed Autumn, including a new premises (YAY!), a new (and VASTLY) improved website, recipes, classes, a cake club and more! We are going to roll into winter a fat and happy bunch!

Best wishes to you all cake lovers!!
