A 'proper cake', this Dundee Cake is filled with orange peel, sultanas, currants and cherries with almonds crowning the top. Not a fruit cake like you get here in the US, the cake itself is dry, not moist, and the fruit gives the cake taste and texture. Serve it a any Scottish gathering, wedding, funerals, christenings, St. Andrews Night, or just because. Measuring 5.75 inches across and 2.75 inches high, cut it with a sharp knife to serve 10 people with tea, coffee or perhaps a wee dram! One of the 1000 foods to eat before you die, according to NY Times writer Mimi Sheraton. 26 ounces packed in a reusable tin.
Ingredients: Quallity vine fruits (36%), wheatflour, butter with salt, sugar, pastuerised eggs, cherries (6% with natural coloring E163), citrus peel, almonds (2%), spice, raising agents (E450, E500). Contains WHEAT, GLUTEN, MILK, EGGS, NUTS.
SHORTBREAD HOUSE is a small, family run bakery based in Scotland's historic capital city of Edinburgh. Anthony Laing and his wife Fiona acquired the business in 1989. Since then, it has grown from a small customer base in Scotland to having customers throughout the UK and abroad. Anthony comes from a family with a strong baking tradition. His father is Lord Laing who was chairman of United Biscuits.
Shortbread House does not aspire to becoming a large conglomerate, preferring to concentrate on a niche market where quality, rather than quantity, is emphasised. Their customer base is predominantly the independent retail trade such as delicatessens, garden centres and department stores such as Fortnum & Mason, John Lewis and Harvey Nichols. All products are genuinely made by hand, so their taste, texture and appearance are quite different from the mass produced brands.
Quality is baked in by a small team of skilled bakers using the very best quality ingredients. All products for Scottish Gourmet USA are made to order to ensure you receive the products as fresh as possible.
