Queen Cakes Premix (20x500g)

Makes 14 cupcakes per premix pack.

Queen cakes probably evolved from Portugal cakes, which were so-called because they were made with sack, or sweet, fortified white wine, from Portugal. Recipes also called for icing, although Elizabeth Moxon advised in English Housewifry (1764), “…you may ice them if you please, but do not let the icings be thicker than you may lie on with a little brush.”

Johan Stapelberg – Master Sourdough Baker

“I have been involved in the baking sector and many baking projects for 45 years and decided to apply my mind and came up with the idea to erect wood fired ovens, also better known as Masonry ovens at strategic points within the various communities where there is hunger and hardship.

But, to make this project sustainable and give it substance, I shared my idea of community ovens with Leon de Bruin and the idea was born to approach the Reformed Church in Pretoria which they took an immediate interest in. It must be stated from the outset that the vision and reach of this Communal Oven project is to be implemented in all churches and communities across South Africa and adjacent countries.”


Delicious, beautiful, mouth watering, lip-smacking, luscious, loving, creamy, crumbly, delicate.
