Welcome to Cakes Direct from The Lodge!
We have been baking the fruit cakes for ten years and mastered the Yorkshire Parkin back in 2012. My parkin was inspired by my Dad’s quest to try and buy traditional Homemade Yorkshire Parkin as oaty and moist as his mother used to bake. And that, surprisingly, is hard to find even here in Halifax in Yorkshire!
We hope that everyone is staying well and keeping safe.
Sadly, both the Living North show at York Racecourse and the Great Yorkshire Christmas Fair in Harrogate have been cancelled.
Where it's made:
Our kitchen where we started ‘Cakes Direct...from The Lodge’ in October 2012 with the support and encouragement of friends, colleagues and every member of our family.
Smith House Lodge is part of the Smith House estate with some buildings dating back to the 1400’s! Situated in Lightcliffe near Halifax, the Lodge has been our family home for 15 years.
