Original Bakewell Pudding

This is the real thing, we don't have tarts in our part of the world! Just puddings, which are a rich egg and almond mixture in a flaky pastry base with sieved strawberry jam on it's bottom.

Ideal for freezing, delicious served warm

This famous delicacy was first discovered over one hundred years ago, when the landlady of the local coach Inn (the White Horse Inn) instructed the cook on what to prepare for her guests that evening.

The pudding after the meal was to have been her favourite recipe, but the instructions were not followed as intended, and hence the Bakewell Pudding was born.

The landlady was so overwhelmed by the success of the new dish, she instructed her cook to carry on making it in that way.

That was back in 1820 and the white horse (presently The Rultand Arms Hotel), became famous for its delicious pudding.

Many years later and people are still coming to Bakewell to sample this delicious sweet, and the puddings bought from Bloomers are as good as they have always been. The cook from the White Horse handed down the recipe to Great Grandad in 1889 and that is why our puddings are "truly original".
