A classic British dessert: a dark sponge cake with hints of molasses made with sweet dates and soaked in a rich toffee sauce. Eat it sliced hot with a dollop of whipped cream or your favorite vanilla ice cream. For a whole different experience, enjoy a slice, a few days after baking, spread with butter, and consumed whilst drinking a hot cup of tea.
Order by February 11th to get this box!
Q: I would like to order this for a Christmas gift but I don't want the first box to arrive before December 25th. When should I place my order?Asked by Beth B., December 2020
If you subscribe after the 12th of the month then you will not receive the December box, the first box shipped will be around January 15th.
If you would like us to email an E Certificate that you can either forward or print out prior to the first box arriving, please purchase your subscription and then email us requesting that one be sent. An E Certificate basically congratulates a recipient that they have been gifted a Baking Box subscription, states who it is from, how long it runs for and includes any gift message requested.
Thanks for your question, don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.
Q: I want to give this as a gift. Can I get the first one sent to me and then change the address to send the rest to the gift recipient?Asked by Leann C., November 2020
Yes absolutely the first box can be shipped to yourself. Once you receive the box email us with the new address for the future shipments and we will amend the system for you.
If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to reach out.

Q: I see tea bags in most photos. Does the monthly box come with sample tea bags along with the dessert ingredients?Asked by Kristy B., September 2020
No they do not - they are just for artistic purposes. Though in the new year, we are hoping to launch a tea and biscuits (cookies) baking subscription where we will pair tea with different types of British biscuits each month.
Thanks for your question.
British Bash has delivered in every way. The boxes are packed nicely. You are given a shipping notice and they arrive right on schedule. The ingredients are perfectly labelled and the baking recipe is very easy to follow. The recipe cards included have great photos, step by step instructions, facts about the bake, and variations if you need them.
The customer service is great. They respond fast to emails and are perfectly polite!
I have enjoyed the recipe I have made and it has provided a great activity to do with the family, with the added plus of having a great treat at the end!!
So glad you enjoyed your box Mary, the next one will be on its way to you the end of this week.
My first box was the tea loaf. It was delicious! The recipe was easy to follow and I love having the dry ingredients all measured out and ready to go. I wish the recipe card included the measurements for the dry ingredients, because I would love to make this again. I am really looking forward to my next box!
So glad you enjoyed the tea loaf, we unfortunately can't add the measurements for the ingredients at present but are working on it. We will however email you the recipe so you can make the loaf again.
Just made our mincemeat pies from the first installment of a 6-month Christmas gift subscription from my daughter. It’s the Great British Baking Show without any stress!
Too bad we can’t invite anyone to tea!

Our January box will be Eve's Pudding. This Victorian era dessert is a delight of simmered slices of spiced apple topped with a sponge, and baked until the cake is golden brown. It is served hot with lashings of equally hot custard. Eve’s pudding is the ultimate comfort dessert for a cold winter’s night. And don’t forget, always great with a cup of tea or a hot toddy.
