Here it is, the long awaited Savvy Cook Christmas 2009 range!
Thank to you everyone who told us how we could make your Christmas easier and more delicious.
We have created eye-catching and delicious cakes to help you celebrate in style, plus a range of time-saving desserts and edible gifts which make gratefully received presents for time-poor hosts.
All cakes are lovingly baked to order using only natural ingredients: organic free-range eggs, natural butter and fairtrade sugar.
This autumn, we have made the most of the very short quince season.
Savvy Cook’s quince meat is a fragrant twist on traditional mince meat and made with butter roasted quinces alongside dried vinefruits and French brandy.
Stocks of quince meat are limited, so to avoid disappointment make sure you place your order for our scrumptious quince pies and Kilner jars of quince meat soon.
Snow topped spice cake
This fruitless, light and aromatic cake is the perfect replacement for the traditional Christmas cake. The sparkly, wintry blanket of royal icing covers a dark gingerbread spiciness and makes it a stylish, modern centre piece.
Serves 10-12 £22
These beauties make a lovely alternative to mince pies! The cake underneath the icing is a chocolately gingerbread.
Each £ 2.50
The essence of Christmas! Flavoured with cinnamon and freshly grated orange zest and full of crunchy cranberries. Eat as they are or spread with butter and marmelade
Each £1.50 bag of 6 £7.95
A thin all butter shortcrust shell covered with quince meat and an almondy topping: in my opinion a much better ratio of interesting filling to pastry than the traditional mince pie (which can be a bit of “sandy” mouthful).
Each £1 or gift box of 6 £6.50 or bag of “baker’s dozen” 13 for £12
Time saving desserts
(Equally at home with a cup of coffee or pot of tea…)
Almond & orange cake
A “plain” looking cake, but looks can be deceptive! Dairy & wheat free, but deliciously moist and fragrant. Serve with berries or a berry compote and Greek yoghurt or cream for a stunning dessert.
Serves 6 – 8 £15
Cranberry upside down cake
Christmas in a cake: all glowing, berried redness with a hint of cinnamon! Serve cold, or warm for 60 seconds in the microwave and serve with creme fraiche.
Serves 6-8 £15
Chocolate & chestnut cake
A seriously elegant pudding! Deeply chocolately and not too sweet.
Serves 8-10 £ 20
Spiced Christmas stars
Give your tree some style with these edible, royal iced gingerbread stars!
Each £ 1.50 or gift bag of 6 £ 8.95
Dark chocolate & cranberry brownies
Deeply chocolately, dark, dense and gooey.
Tray of 12-16 pieces £24
Savvy Cook’s amazingly fragrant mince meat. Made with butter roasted quinces and vegetable suet. Perfect for spicing up baked apples and good quality vanilla ice cream. Presented in a re-usable new style Kilner jar.
500g £ 6.95
