My Cottage Kitchen lovingly bakes very special fruitcakes for Kelmscott Manor. The world famous Arts and Crafts designer William Morris had an abundance of practical skills, including embroidery, gardening and cooking. The fruitcakes have been inspired following the discovery of a book of recipes annotated by Morris at Kelmscott Manor, the family's Oxfordshire country retreat. 


Please order a William Morris fruitcake some of the proceeds will be donated towards our campaign for Kelmscott Manor.


£292 was raised for Kelmscott Manor during Christmas 2016.


William Morris Easter cakes will be dispatched  at the beginning of April.

William Morris: celebrity chef? In addition to being a world-class designer, it transpires that the Arts and Crafts figurehead William Morris was also a dab hand in the kitchen.
