The British need no reason to devour cakes or nibble cookies. They can enjoy Shortbread with the early morning tea, Chelsea buns as a mid-morning snack, a slice of saffron cake at lunch, a whole array of bakes for evening high-tea, and whisky cake for that post-dinner luxury. Storybooks are filled with yummy tales of high-teas, midnight feasts, picnic baskets, summer luncheons on the green.
This infographic gives the fascinating story of British bakes, and the geographic location within the Isles from where the recipes originated. No wonder they say that Britain can be defined by its bakes!
