Meet Yorkshire Bake Off star Freya Cox at Castle Howard – where she’ll be signing copies of her book and showcasing her baking.
Freya, from Scarborough, competed on The Great British Bake Off in 2021 when she was just 19. She was the first vegan baker to take part in the show.
It was announced earlier this year that Freya had teamed up with Castle Howard to create three seasonal vegan cakes, and the third and final bake of 2023 is her autumnal Double Chocolate Muffin with Toasted White Chocolate Marshmallows.
The tasty treat is available to purchase in Castle Howard’s Coffee Shop, Courtyard Café and Boathouse Café from today (Tuesday).
Luke Butler, head of food and beverage at Castle Howard, said: “We’re thrilled to have worked with Freya to expand our vegan offering here at Castle Howard, with a delicious option every season.
“It’s been a wonderful opportunity to create new plant-based treats for our visitors, and we’re delighted with their popularity.”
Freya will also be visiting the Castle Howard Farm Shop on Tuesday 31 October from 1-3pm, to sign copies of her recipe book Simply Vegan Baking and meet and greet Castle Howard visitors.
And visitors can try a free Double Chocolate Muffin with Toasted White Chocolate Marshmallows with every Simply Vegan Baking purchase!
Freya said: “It’s been absolutely brilliant to collaborate with the team at Castle Howard. I’m so excited for people to try a beautiful cake in a beautiful place that means a lot to me and my family.
“I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!”
