Homemade Nottingham: A haven for cake lovers
With the weather cooling down, now is the time to get cosy inside with a nice cup of tea and a generous piece of cake.
Homemade Cafe in Nottingham is known as a haven for cake lovers, and it takes a will of steel to walk past its inviting window display without being drawn in for a piece of cake.
We were lucky enough to sample some of the cakes recently for an office taste test (it’s a tough job…). We had four cakes to try: Blueberry Sponge, Carrot Cake, Flapjack and a Brownie. Homemade is known for having the best Brownies in Nottingham, so our expectations were high! We certainly weren’t disappointed. Here’s what the team had to say…
“A generous wedge of sponge reminiscent of good old fashioned home baking. A summery flavour, with delicate blue hues and the most delicious creamy frosting. 8/10.” – Lynzi
“Cake was soft and a really nice sweet taste of blueberry. 7/10.” – Dale
“An individual stamp on a carrot cake, not like any I have tasted before. The flavours, although subtle, made an impact. Once again, the frosting was the winning element for me. 7/10.” – Lynzi
“Awesome….all elements working to bring the taste love. 10/10.” – Keith
“Right level of chewiness. Plenty of juicy fruit. Lost a few marks for being slightly on the dry-ish side however that’s most probably a personal thing. 7/10.” – Sarah
“One of the better flapjacks I have tasted! Great texture and plenty of fruit thrown in. 8/10.” – Erin
“Moist chocolate icing and slightly bitter chocolate after taste. It went down really well. 9/10.” – Dale
“Loved how chocolatey this was, perfect with a hot drink. Give me more! 9/10.” – Erin
