Cartwright & Butler Date & Walnut Loaf Cake is indulgent, heavy with fruit and nuts. This cake is made from an age-old recipe rich in dates and walnuts, moist from real butter. The perfect accompaniment to a strong cup of tea! Beautifully presented in an open-topped tin with a bow it makes a lovely gift for someone special.
about the producer
It all started around 1905 with two sisters in the front room of a terraced house in Yorkshire. When Jennie and Kathrine Adam’s father died leaving them with no income, they started baking and selling their cakes to make ends meet. Their little cottage industry did so well, they soon outgrew their kitchen and they moved to their own bakery, bringing sister Maria into the family business. Their reputation grew and soon they joined forces with the Arnett family, who owned a chain of bakeries, and began to build their business, with a shared vision to be the best bakers in the North. Today the business is run by a new generation of Arnetts, Terry and Tony Arnett, direct descendants of the original founders. Cartwright & Butler is built on a passion for food that puts a smile on your face.
