Improve your baking skills this Spring

If your 2019 resolution is to “be more Berry” and get busier in the kitchen thanks to inspiration from the Great British Bake off, one of the best places to start is learning how to create some tasty Easter treats.

Maybe you’ve seen a recipe for a spring birthday cake or springtime dessert you’d like to master, or Mary Berry’s enthusiasm for cake has won you over, then now is the time to come back to school.

Whatever has inspired you to warm up the oven and dust off the mixing bowl, we have a class for you to help you challenge the Queen of Cake for her crown and learn how to make some spring treats or traditional Easter desserts.

Learn to bake some of the classics; including your own gorgeous wee buns and light-as-a-feather scones in this fun and action-packed class.

My granny baked some of these lovely recipes every day. I will be using my Granny Blacker’s griddle to demonstrate Potato Apple Bread which is uniquely Nothern Irish and very specific to County Armagh, the Orchard County renowned for it’s Bramley Apples. Potato Apple Bread was always made by my mother for Halloween, it’s a bit like an apple tart but uses potato bread instead of pastry and is not for the faint-hearted, oozing with melted Irish butter and sugar.

  • Wheaten Bread
  • Fruit Soda Bread
  • Potato Apple Bread
  • Potato Bread
  • Fruit Scones

You will make the Fruit Soda OR Wheaten Bread, Fruit Scones and Potato Bread.

You will marvel at how easy it is to produce your own delicious home-baked soda bread.

Thank you for the wonderful Traditional Baking class.,Big John went along begrudgingly but ended up having a ball and out-baking the women.. so keen was he that he ended up baking his own wheaten bread the day after as per the recipe we took home. There’s no faking that smile, he’s delighted with himself.
