Great news, Christmas is around the corner, and approaching us faster day by day! The holiday season is filled with joy, from spending time with family and friends, to receiving and opening gifts placed underneath our beautifully decorated tree, but how could we forget our most enjoyed part of the Christmas season – THE FOOD! The mince pies, puddings, cakes and even the turkey, Dunn’s loves every part of Christmas dining.

With the festive season coming into full effect, yearly traditions have also begun. Whether it is your family’s tradition to go carol singing on Christmas Eve, or to celebrate the worldwide tradition of roasting a turkey for Christmas day dinner, we all follow some kind of tradition this time of the year. Here at Dunn’s Bakery, we have our very own tradition which we like to follow. Every year the Dunn’s Bakery family gathers together to dress up our shop window. Keeping with the festive theme, we place our Christmas tree decorated with our hand baked gingerbread ornaments and ribbons, Christmas cakes and pies, wreaths, and lights in our window, bringing the Christmas spirit into our bakery.

You know Christmas is around the corner once our festive blackboard comes out to make its appearance. The countdown till Christmas couldn’t be any more exciting.

Keeping with traditions in Dunn’s Bakery, we have launched our Christmas range for 2015, and we are just as excited about this as you, possibly even more. Everything in Dunn’s is coming together for the holiday season, and we want to do everything in our power to make your Christmas tastier this year with our freshly baked desserts.

We have a wide selection to choose from in our Christmas range. From our velvet iced Christmas sponge or fruit cake, to our traditional round luxury Dundee cake made with currants, raisins, fresh orange and tangy lemon, decorated with split almonds. Or maybe you’re interested in our freshly baked mince pies packed full of our delicious homemade mincemeat in a variation of pastries. Could we tempt you with our Gingerbread delights? A gingerbread house could be the centrepiece of your desserts table, with hand decorated gingerbread snowmen and angels. Or perhaps you would prefer one of our freshly baked luxury Christmas puddings.

Our traditional Christmas pudding recipe has been handed down through the family for years! They are made with the freshest currants, raisins, sultanas and mixed peel, with lemons and spices to enhance the flavour and redemption ale and brandy to make our Christmas puddings the very best. Take a look at the video below, we give you a sneak peek into how we create our Christmas puddings.

2x Deep Fill Shortcrust Mince Pies

chocolate Christmas Logs

Where do I begin? There’s so much to talk about. The heady aromas floating around the Bakery are intoxicating and as I sit upstairs in the office I can barely concentrate. So let’s talk about Christmas in Dunn’s – there just so much to choose from. Every time I write my Christmas list I add something else. Right here goes…

Christmas Pudding… oh yes! and our homemade Brandy butter.

Mince pies – what to choose? There’s Shortcrust , Wholemeal or wonderful flaky puff. I know I’ll get an assorted box then everyone is happy.

Christmas cake – thankfully we have our traditional fruit and a lovely light sponge cake so no problem there.

Oh  I must get the gingerbread for the children, they love the fun Christmas shapes and then there’s the fancy cakes, snow people with their brightly coloured scarves and Santa’s chimney a particular favourite.

There’s the fresh cream gateaux for those who want a creamy after dinner treat.  But then there’s  the Ganache Yule logs that have both the cream and chocolate – just too yummy to resist! Hey, after all the cooking I am doing I deserve a treat!

I usually buy the mini Christmas cake and Mini Dundee cake for my neighbour , because she lives on her own a mini cake is just enough for her. Oh the Dundee cake I must add that to the list … I think it will be nice to try the Cherry Orange Dundee, a lovely zesty, tangy taste. Oh, but there’s the Stollen and this year it has cranberries in it. I got to taste test it (One of the perks of the job!!). It is lovely fruity and juicy.

Oh what to do! Every time I write my list I end up changing it.  I just can’t make up my mind…

I’ve got an idea – if I get a Dunn’s Christmas hamper then I don’t have to decide – it’s already done for me and there’s even a bottle in it – Job done! Dilemma resolved!

Happy Christmas!
