As the weather was so beautiful, we thought we’d go on a day-trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon (again!). Last time we went we walked past Hobsons Patisseries, however as it was a chilly day it was absolutely packed, but as we went after lunch this time we managed to find ourselves a space!
Offering a huge selection of teas, coffees, cakes, sandwiches as well as other hot and cold food Hosbons undoubtedly has something to please everyone, whether you’re after a quick bite or an afternoon tea.
After spending an embarrassingly long time perusing their impressively large cake selection we finally settled on two cakes, the first being an apple caramel toffee cake.
The apple cake was deliciously soft and moist, reminding me of the ones we used to make when we were little. It was very light, not heavy as one might expect, an all round favourite. Have to replicate this one at home!
The second cake we went for was a toffee waffle cheesecake. At first glance behind the glass, there was no indication of the waffle part of the cheesecake, so we assumedit might just be crumbled on top. How wrong we were.
Little did we know that inside of the cake, sandwiched between the two cheesecake layers, was a whole slice of waffle. We thought this was absolute culinary genius, just truly amazing. The two layers of cheesecake were beautifully soft, with the slightly crunchy waffle providing an amazing contrast of texture and flavour. I guess it means we’ve now got two cakes to try to replicate!
Hobsons Patisseries is something everyone ought to try out (along with their waffle cheesecake) if you’re ever in the ever so beautiful Stratford-Upon-Avon!
