Great British Bake Off 2022: What’s Bristol’s favorite cake?

As the much-loved baking contest returns to small screens across the town, new research has revealed from Bristol favorite cake.

The data comes from an online family bakery Cutter and Squidge who discovered the most popular sweet treats across the country, and how our taste buds differ from region to region.

It seems that the North West love to slip into a soft Victoria sponge, while in the East Midlands the preference is for fruit-based creations like a Derbyshire Bakewell pie.

The study shows that Bristolians are fond of a slice of walnut and coffee cake.

The sponge cake is made with coffee, usually instant or “camp” coffee, accompanied by pieces of nuts. The cake is often filled with flavored buttercream frosting and topped with more buttercream frosting and walnut halves.

Caramel cake is also a popular choice in our region – a strong option if you don’t like or can’t have coffee.

Bristolians also enjoy a super sweet slice of caramel cake, according to the study.

Traditionally, this treat is made with layers of simple homemade cake topped with a creamy brown sugar caramel icing made on the stovetop with evaporated milk.

The study also found that 20% of people admit to eating cake every week and another 25% say they eat it 2-3 times a week.

Spicy lemon drizzle was universally popular across the country, while children enjoyed themed cakes based on their favorite television characters the most.

Research shows how our taste buds differ from region to region.
