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.

Dunn's Christmas Puddings

Yes, it’s that time of year to pop into Dunn’s Bakery and order your festive favourites.  From Christmas cake to Almond Petit Fours here at Dunn’s we have all that you need for a wonderful Christmas Day filled with all the classic family favourites.  We also have  contemporary treats like our Christmas Cake Pops.  The Children ( big and small!) will love these .  This year our christmas puddings have been made using Redemption Ale – beer from a local brewery based in Tottenham.    The best thing about our christmas puddings is the taste and the fact that they  do not contain nuts and are also suitable for vegetarians.    We have added cranberries and even more orange to our Stollen enhancing its delicious flavour and giving it a zesty zingy taste!

Dunn's Assorted Mince Pies

Our amazing Mince Pies are legendary with our customers.  There’s so many to choose from from mouthwatering buttery short crust, wholemeal , deep filled  to our moorish puff pastry mince pies why not buy a box now and share  with friends, family or colleagues .  A mince pie is always a welcome accompaniment  with a cuppa after a hetic morning wrapping presents or Christmas shopping.

Dunn's Santa's Chimney

Our christmas fancies make a colourful contribution to your festive table .  The delightful novelty shapes will have the children making a beeline for these. Our santa’s chimney shows how santa delivered all the Christmas presents  and our snowperson fancy with it’s coloured scarf  is a sweet treat not to be missed.

Mary Portas was in Dunn’s Bakery today saying how lovely the shop is.  She bought our limited edition Cornish Blue Christmas pudding – Mary please let us  know what you think of the pud!

Mary raved about both the shop and our products and bought lots of goodies including our new GI and Cranberry bread as well as some custard tarts.

Hopefully Mary will enjoy her Dunn’s delicious Danish Pastries and coffee, whilst reminiscing with her partner Melanie who was a former employee in her student days.  Mary enjoyed meeting and having a chat with Dunn’s staff – some had worked with Melanie.

We loved Mary’s honest and direct opinion – high praise indeed from Ms Portas!

Redemption Ale Bread

Redemption Ale Bread

Try our new redemption ale bread only £1.95 for a 400 gram loaf.   The bread is baked in the bottom of the oven with the ale giving the bread a delicious taste and a wonderful aroma. The Redemption Brewing Company is a small brewery based in North London.  They have been Brewing since January 2010.  They are passionate brewers of cask ale, committed to using the finest raw materials to craft beers with flavour, character and integrity.  This was something that appealed to us and fits in with our ethos to source from local suppliers wherever possible so the chance to use beer brewed in Tottenham was an opportunity not to be missed!

We use the Redemption Pale Ale in our bread and this gives the bread a wonderful almost nutty flavour which goes lovely with a nice big hunk of cheese or a generous slathering of your favourite  spread!

We have also incorporated the Redemption Ale into our Christmas puddings.  They are maturing nicely and will be the centrepiece of your festive meal.    So make sure you order your pudding early as we are sure like the redemption loaf the puddings will fly out the door.
