Bake with Compassion 2011 launches

News Section Icon Published 25/10/2011

This year our Bake with Compassion week, (22 - 30 October) kicked off with a tea party at Spitalfields City Farm in London. Supporters from across the country came laden with delicious cakes to share and swapped recipes using high welfare ingredients. All sorts of cakes were on offer from pumpkin to pistachio, from cheesecakes to flapjacks.

Bake with Compassion needs you!

Bake with Compassion calls for cookery fans to bake cakes using free-range or organic eggs and other high welfare ingredients, then sell their wares to raise funds.

If you wish to join in, you can hold any event you like - from cake sales to baking competitions, coffee mornings to dinner parties. Or why not host a Halloween party complete with spooky, compassionate cakes?

What better way to keep the kids entertained this half term?

Bake like the stars

Everyone is joining in, and celebrities such as Joanna Lumley, Coronation Street actress Kate Ford, baker Lily Vanilli, MP Zac Goldsmith, and TV chefs Paul Merrett and Prue Leith have all shared their recipes with us. Recipes can be found here.

When Joanna Lumley sent us her recipe she said: "I am delighted to share with you my favourite scrumptious cake recipe. I always use organic free range eggs. By using the combined power of all our shopping trolleys I know we can all help to change the market. I admire Compassion's dedicated campaign to free hens from their dire, distressing cages. Let's all work together for a free range future for hens - and all farm animals!"
