The Great Beerish Bake Off

The Grainstore Brewery in Station Approach, Oakham, and The Rutland Cake Company at Oakham Enterprise Park have developed a number of cakes and bakes which launched at the Rutland Food and Drink Festival on Sunday, October 29th, with one ingredient in common – beer.

Using bottles of The Grainstore’s real ales and ciders brewed in Oakham, Naomi Morgan, who opened The Rutland Cake Company Café earlier this year has written recipes that will not only be baked and sold at both locations, but can be recreated at home.

Among them is a beer meringue, a three-ingredient fruit cake, beer blondies and soda bread.

Naomi said: We’re trying to encourage bakers to use local produce as much as they can, so I have developed each recipe using a bottle of beer or a bottle of cider and making them as accessible for all as possible. We use local eggs and flour and they taste amazing.

A real slice of Rutland.

The recipes proved so popular at the brilliant Rutland Food and Drink Festival, that we have now made them available to download, just click on each link below.
