“Bake Off” at Bath C.C.


“Budding Bakers now is the time, the opportunity has arrived, grasp the moment, could you be the next Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood”?

Cricket is a game with many idiosyncrasies, none more unusual than at “Half Time” or “Cricket tea” as its more commonly known, where the players gorge themselves on the culinary delights presented to them, and then go back on to the field of play and run around like mad men and woman. No other sport indulges in such practices?

Nothing can be considered more quintessentially English than a lady wearing a “pinny” in the cricket pavilion (careful) buttering bread and scones, with children eagerly waiting to put a grubby finger in the bowl containing the icing for the fairy cakes. We need to replicate those Halcyon days of yesteryear.

So, how would you like to “Bake a Cake” for a cricket tea?

You can make anything you like, cupcakes, lemon drizzle, coffee & walnut, or what about eclairs with a cream filling, or some scones maybe, why not a mixture of them all?

All you need to do is simply pick a weekend game at North Parade that you wish your baking creation to be added to the “Tea Table”, and if you have the energy to make extra for our side playing at the “Brownsword” Ground, then that would be appreciated. Best of all, the club will happily pay for the ingredients used, or if you wish we could put the money toward our chosen charity, “The Jesse May Trust”.

Finally, we will have prizes for the most memorable efforts of the season which will be decided by our three judges, Seb “The Masterbaker” Benton, Kelly “Miss Hospitality” Morton, and Rob “Room for one more” Maggs.

Please contact Kelly Morton or Phil Chant at the club should you wish to get involved; email
