Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop (The)
This is one of two bakeries in the picturesque town of Bakewell, a 20 minute bus or taxi ride from Sheffield City Centre. Both shops claim to have the only original recipe for Bakewell pudding, a local speciality which is said to have been the result of a mistake made by a cook at the White Horse Inn in 1860, but which became an instant hit locally. The recipe was a closely guarded secret but both bakeries claim to have the only set of original instructions. This shop, an 18th century building which retains many original features and also has a restaurant upstairs, was originally a chandler's; a chandler's wife was said to have been the first to obtain the true recipe and sell puddings. Most people say the puddings taste the same whichever shop you get them from, but why not try for yourself? Puddings are bought by people from all over the world and can even be posted to you at home.
