Welsh Cakes & Bara Brith

Welsh Cakes (picau ar y maen) are traditional in Wales & have been popular since the late 19th Century. Using only basic dried ingedients, they were popular with mining families as an inexpensive, robust cake. Miners would often take one into the mine in their pockets to keep hunger at bay.


Bara Brith is translated into 'speckled bread' and it's a traditional, fruit loaf which is normally served with plenty of Welsh butter. The dried fruit is soaked in tea overnight, this gives the loaf a delicious, moist centre which has a lovely, rich flavour. Again, made with only basic ingredients, bara brith was popular with mining families and was a tea time favourite.


Our delicious, artisan welshcakes and bara brith are handmade with love & freshly baked before your special occasion or event. We use only the finest (and when possible, Welsh) ingredients, including fresh, free range Welsh eggs & the most delicious, creamy Welsh butter.


They are beautifully presented and make a perfect accompaniment to any event such as business meetings, corporate events, Christenings, baby showers - the list is endless!
