Here's a lovely post from the Eat Hackney following her recent visit to Formans. This…
You can have your cake AND eat it?!
We Brits love an Afternoon Tea; fresh scones, fruity jam, a good old pot of tea, we go nuts! We’re no different here at Forman & Field, and our selection of cakes and treats are a perfect addition to any tea party. Whether it’s one cake you’re after, or a complete hamper ready to serve, we can help!
A Tunisian pudding, revived and reinvented by Lloyd Hardwick. ‘Cardamom in a cake?!’ Believe us, it’s absolutely delicious. The recipe is so incredibly moist with a spicy, aromatic tang and is made with freshly ground almonds. Perfect with a cup of coffee, and will certainly be the most surprising cake at a tea party!
OK so this may not be found in Afternoon Tea, but our banana bread is still worth mentioning! It’s is really good with a nice cup of coffee when you don’t want anything too sickly or heavy. Made with ripe bananas (of course) and with none of that artificial flavouring. As natural and home baked as possible. Here’s a suggestion from us: Try it toasted with butter; a revelation at breakfast time!
This cake tastes as good as it looks, and you can hold us to that! Influenced by the trend for North African and Middle Eastern flavour combinations our chefs have created this beautiful cake. The sharp kick of lemon counters the sweetness of the pistachios perfectly. The end result is a delicious moist cake, with a simply unrivaled flavour. This deserves a prime place at tea!
This hamper is “jam-packed” with treats to make you feel very special indeed. We’ve hand-picked some of our finest sweet treats, including home made fresh scones, and even produced a mini trio of our most popular cakes so that you can enjoy an indulgent Afternoon Tea.
