Sneak Peek

November 2021 Box - Fruit Crumble and Custard

Novembers box is perfect for those cold winter evenings. This simple dessert is deceptively delicious. Your choice of fruit is lightly sweetened and spiced, covered with a crumble and then topped with a fine layer of oats. Baked, this dessert resembles a crisp or a cobbler but don’t be fooled. Serve it hot with a generous helping of vanilla custard. (Kit makes one 8x8 fruit crumble and 2 cups of custard)

Order by November 12th to get this box!

Q: Can a non-dairy & soy person switch out ingredients to make it work? Asked by Ashley C., October 2021

The British Bash answered...October 2021

Hi Ashley
That may be difficult as we make mixes for certain recipes which occasionally do contain milk powder.
We do list all the ingredients provided in each kit on the bottom of the box so you would be able to see what was included.
Kind Regards
Stephanie

Q: At the top it says orders placed today ship Dec 1 (today is Oct 17). When I scroll down and see the Nov 2021 sneak peek, it says 'order by Nov 15th to receive this box'. Which is it?Asked by S S., October 2021

The British Bash answered...October 2021

Apologies for that, there is a glitch in the Cratejoy system that has caused the Dec 1 statement to appear. They are working on a fix for it and have assured us they will produce a workaround shortly.
All of our boxes (whether the first or subsequent) ship on or around the 15th of each month. The next shipment will be November 15th for the Fruit Crumble and Custard box, orders need to be placed by November 12th to receive that kit.

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!!

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!

The British Bash said...Nov 11, 2020

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.

Happy Baking

We gifted this to my partner's daughter who enjoys baking, and she loves the box! She has sent us pictures from the two projects she has made, and commented on the uniqueness and deliciousness of the baked goods. We extended the gift for her Birthday which she is excited about!

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!
