I’ve written a piece for BBC Good Food about the return of the retro cake. You can read it here
Yes! Give me a slice of gypsy tart over a whoopie pie anyday. Great piece. Pilgrammage to Fitzbillies soon?
it’s got to be done Salty- definitely!
That’s interesting…I am always going through my mum’s old cookbooks that have these retro recipes and have always wanted to have a go making them. I did make some Cornish/Devonshire splits a few months back. They were SO good, split open with cream and jam. I am all for a retro revival.
Great bit of writing there, Rejina.
Cheers Nazneen – those splits sound incredible!
Agreed. Get the Elizabeth David dusted off and in action. There is definitely a market for the revival of classic british tea shops like Bettys’ or Fitzbillies – though I’m a bit confused as I was brought up in Cambridge and can’t remember it..
I definitely favour the “retro” cakes and make them all–made Fat Rascals last week in honour of my Yorkshire grandfather.
He must have been a proud man -ooh I do adore a nice fat rascal with a proper cup of tea.
