Lottie Shaw’s Bakery
Lottie Shaw’s is a family-run craft bakery tucked away in Elland, West Yorkshire. Lottie Shaw’s family have baked seriously good biscuits and cakes in Yorkshire for more than 100 years and their recipes have been passed down through the generations.
The range of products includes Yorkshire parkin, brandy snaps, treacle tarts, fruit cake and biscuits. A small hamper is the perfect way to sample Lottie Shaw’s delights, ideally with a large pot of tea to hand to allow you to best enjoy the large portion of her Yorkshire parkin. The treacle flavour is lovely and the parkin has a super stickiness to it. The label suggests serving it on a summer’s day with strawberries and cream, or on a winter’s day with stewed fruit and hot custard. We concur!
Also seriously good are the all-butter shortbread biscuits, which provide amazing melt-in-your-mouth moments. If a product has won both Best Bakery Product and Supreme Product in the Deliciously Yorkshire Awards then you know you are in for a treat!
Lottie’s website has lots of excellent treats for Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, Easter and more.
