Customer Questions (1)


Q: Hi - I have a friend who would LOVE this - but they are allergic to eggs. Do the next few recipes include eggs?Asked by Julie C., November 2022

The British Bash answered...November 2022

Hi Julie,
Unfortunately most of our kits (including the next few months) do require an egg(s) to be added by the baker themselves at the time of cooking. Possibly an egg substitute could be used but that is not something we have looked into. Also even though we do not add eggs directly to our kits we can not guarantee that any ingredients we use do not contain any egg or have not been contaminated by any egg related products prior to our purchase.
Kind Regards

As someone with a special talent for messing up any sort of cooking or baking, I definitely appreciate how clear and easy to understand the instructions are. I bought the box as a Christmas gift for my mom, and it's been fun to spend some time working on these with her every month! The fact that we end up with delicious desserts afterwards is just a bonus.

Great British baking fun!

We got British Bash to engage our special needs 11yo who loved and binged the Great British Baking Show. The boxes arrive well-packaged and include all but the wet stuff for each recipe. Recipes are thoughtfully curated and include a great little history on each card. The whole process is fun and easy and the end products are unique and a blast to share.

I received my first baking kit in December. Everything arrived in great shape and I really enjoyed making the pies. My second kit arrived in January. This would make a great gift gift to those who love to bake. I will be ordering this for my daughter as a birthday gift.

Great recipes

I liked this last box, because it contained a recipe that is simple to make. Can't wait to try it or the Lancashire Lemon Tarts! Was a little disappointed on the timing of shipping.

Hi Melissa,
So glad you are enjoying the boxes. Unfortunately we have no control over USPS once the boxes leave us. We do however always ship priority so do the upmost we can at our end to get your boxes to you promptly.

To put it simply, I absolutely love these baking kits! I am a huge fan of the British Baking shows, and have always wanted to attempt the desserts I've seen made on tv. This subscription service makes that possible, and in such a fun and stress-free way. I've gained baking confidence and had an awesome time making and sharing these desserts. The boxes themselves are arranged very well; obvious care and attention is placed during packaging. The ingredients and tools that are provided are organized and of great quality. The instructions, especially the images and the helpful baking tips, are absolutely top-notch, as they serve as the perfect guide throughout the baking experience. I've received three boxes through my subscription and purchased two previous boxes, and everything has come out so well and tasted great! I've enjoyed this service so much I've recently updated to a full year subscription! Of final note is that the customer service I've received is just as great as the service itself. If you're debating this box, please do yourself a favor and try it out! Highly recommended!

December 2021 Box - Mince Pies

Sweet mincemeat encased in a crumbly, sweet short crust pastry and dusted with a layer of powdered sugar make these delicious Christmas treats. The kit allows you to make your own pastry and mincemeat from various dried fruits such as dates, raisins, cranberries, apricots, currants, and flavor with spices. Use brandy for a boozy pie or orange juice for an alcohol-free version. Lovely with a cup of tea. (The kit makes 12 servings.)

February 2022 - Viennese Whirls

This moist, light loaf is packed full of flavor. The slight crunch from the walnuts and the sweet chewiness of the dates creates a great alternative to a traditional fruit cake.

October 2022 - Spotted Dick and Custard

October 2022 - Spotted Dick and Custard

Steamed puddings have been popular in the UK for hundreds of years, Spotted Dick is one of the most well known and is a quintessentially classic English dessert.

November 2022 - Jamaican Ginger Cake

November 2022 - Jamaican Ginger Cake

This loaf originated in Britain and is named for the Jamaican ginger used in its creation. Use the kit ingredients to make a sticky, moist cake infused with ginger and golden syrup. Top the popular British loaf with honey butter icing and stem ginger pieces to produce a delicious treat. Enjoy on its own with a cup of tea, or warm it up and serve with ice cream. Loaf makes 6-8 servings.
