English Cake Company

  • Diyatha Uyana, Battaramulla

The English Cake Company makes some amazing sweets and savories. It's run by a home baker and her family and they make really tasty sweets like brownies, lemon and blueberry cake, passion fruit tarts, cheesecake, pavlova, etc. They also make savories like quiche and pizza, plus homemade yoghurts and curds. It's all really excellent stuff, and quite affordable as well.


UPDATE: The English Cake Company now has its own outlet open every day. Read more here.

Mmm. Tasty cakes. Nom nom nom.

Seriously, the English Cake Company makes some amazing sweets and savories. It's run by a home baker and her family and they make really tasty sweets like brownies, lemon and blueberry cake, passion fruit tarts, cheesecake, pavlova, etc. They also make savories like quiche and pizza, plus homemade yoghurts and curds. It's all really excellent stuff, and quite affordable as well.

You can catch them every Thursday at the Good Market in Battaramulla (near Water's Edge) from 12 PM to 8 PM. Come early, however, because they do sell out. At the Good Market we got everything our greedy hearts desired (quiche, two pieces of lemon cake, two pieces of passion tart, a brownie, and a slice of Victoria Sandwich) for Rs. 1,400. Which is about what you'd pay for a fraction of the satisfaction at a coffee shop. If you want to order whole cakes (which are huge) they range from Rs. 1,100 to Rs. 2,500.

The quality is excellent and the cakes have something really special about them. They don't look picture perfect, but they do look and taste delicious. Everything we ordered was among the best we've ever had. The lemon and blueberry tart was a special favorite and the brownie was amazing. She also made an exquisite quiche.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough. We don't have public ratings (yet) but we do keep a record and this has the only perfect 5 so far. It's fantastic cakes done by a lovely family in a great location in Battaramulla, or by order. Seriously, just look at the pictures and drop by Good Market on Thursday and try them out.

TIP

Try everything.
