My Cottage Kitchen

Self-taught baker Ursula Evans lovingly bakes all her fruitcakes in her AGA cooker at home in Shropshire. She started her business My Cottage Kitchen 5 years ago, and has since won numerous awards for her baking.

Ursula uses British butter and free-range eggs, and a lot of dried fruits and nuts sourced from Shropshire based businesses. In order to keep them at their best they come packaged in reusable tins and tied with ribbon. Not only are her fruitcakes enjoyed across the UK and around the world, but have been sent to our troops in Afghanistan and to an over-winter team at the South Pole.

The time has come to give fruitcake the respect it deserves, in Ursula’s own words, “Fruitcakes aren’t just for Christmas”.
