Trusted foodservice brand Country Range is helping caterers with their sweet offerings with the addition of four new seductive treats for autumn.
The new range, which includes a Rhubarb & Custard Tart, Chocolate & Ginger Cake, Pear & Maple Slice and Plum & Almond Slice, just need to be defrosted overnight before serving. Great for a sublime speedy serve whatever the hour, these moreish cakes can be warmed in a conventional oven or microwave.
The Fab Four
Rhubarb & Custard Tart – Sweet pastry filled with tangy rhubarb and dairy custard topped with vanilla sponge and an oaty crumble. Delicious when served with vanilla ice cream.
Chocolate & Ginger Cake – A sticky gluten free spiced ginger cake, filled with a chocolate icing, topped with a chocolate ganache and crystallised stem ginger. Double up on the chocolate by serving warm with a chocolate ice cream.
Plum & Almond Slice – Plum compote on sweet pastry baked with almond sponge and finished with plums and flaked almonds. Beautiful with a brew or even more indulgent when served with custard, clotted cream or ice cream.
Pear & Maple Slice – Poached pears baked with a silky vanilla sponge and dulce de leche drizzled with maple syrup. Versatile enough to accompany a hot beverage or take centre stage as a dessert on a menu or buffet when served with fresh whipped cream.
Kate Bancroft, Country Range Group Marketing Manager, said: “Whether your customers and guests want to celebrate or commiserate the end of summer, cake is always the answer and our new super selection of seductive autumn treats are just the ticket for success this September. Perfect for kitchens lacking the time and space to create their own cakes in-house, these four fab desserts are sure to be hit with caterers due to their great flavour and speedy preparation.”
