Who likes ginger? I love it. Ginger in food, ginger in biscuits, ginger cake, ginger beer, anything ginger. Some people really dislike ginger though. I wonder why this is.Continue reading Who likes ginger?
Summer is here but Wimbledon isn’t. Not this year. It’s cancelled. Surely strawberries and cream with a glass of champagne or Pimms isn’t cancelled though. Certainly not here. It’s part of summer, of course.
If you have a sweet tooth, this is for you. Sweet strawberry jam sandwiched between our Homemade Shortbread base and the champagne flavoured white chocolate top. Strawberries and cream with Champagne in a bake. Perfect for Wimbledon finals week, if it was on.
Look out for Strawberry Shortbread appearing in the “Select contents” options for ordering online.Continue reading Summer is here

We make our own Homemade Shortbread. So, we know it is pure and contains only flour, butter and sugar, with a bit of love thrown in for good measure. Shortbread is the base to a couple of new products that will be coming along over the next few days. But, it’s so good that we decided to sell it on its own.

How you choose a chocolate brownie tin depends on what you are looking for. I’ve used several tins of various types to bake my chocolate brownies in. Each has its good and bad points. I’ve found that different ones suited me better at different times and for different reasons. For example, when baking for friends and family, how they look is not so important but when baking commercially it’s very important. Also, when baking commercially, consistency is key. Ideally my brownies will look homemade and rustic but must look like this consistently. If they vary considerably it could affect their appeal. So, I’m always looking for methods of making my chocolate brownies that is easy and consistent. Here I describe the equipment I started with and what I use now.Continue reading How to choose a chocolate brownie tin?
I’m Martin Ainscow and Bakes and Brownies is my company. I sometimes refer to the company as we because my partner Julie assists with the running and it seems right to refer to it as we.
All of the products are made to my recipes and everything is baked by me. So, my products are the definition of handmade and I know them because they were made by my own fair hand.
We are based in the North East of England and we make indulgent and mouthwatering tray bakes and brownies. What more can I say? Well what about some history?Continue reading What is Bakes and Brownies?
