HOME OF THE FAMOUS
TARTE AU CITRON…
CAKE BAKING AND PUDDINGS!
After over 22 years providing the best cakes and puddings in the Lake District, (including the legendary Tarte au Citron) Jumping Jenny has established the highest reputation for cakes and puddings – (google ‘jumping jenny coniston’).
We are looking for someone to assist in the kitchen, particularly with baking and cooking puddings, with a possibility of that person taking up an apprenticeship.
WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY STAFF
We are also looking for somebody to wash up and wait on tables, with prospects for greater things…. We have been training staff for twenty years – you could over time acquire all skills necessary to run a restaurant – and can even boast a member of staff who has been with us for all 20 years!
Full training, good pay, a friendly place to work, lovely customers, and, occasionally, you will get free cake….
Jumping Jenny is also closely connected to the business of Belmount Hall – www.belmount.net – where we cater for weddings for up to 200 people.
Great potential – apply now!
COFFEE HOUSE AND LICENSED RESTAURANT
Brantwood, Coniston, Cumbria LA21 8AD
Just received the following email:-
We visited the Jumping Jenny café on Sunday afternoon and enjoyed tea & scones on the terrace. This was our second visit in a month to the café as we also visited on May Day.
We think the scones are the best we’ve ever tasted and we’ve tried a few !
Do you buy them in or are they baked on site ? If you bake them yourselves is it possible to let me have the recipe please ?
Thanks very much.”
The very idea that we would/could buy them in! For twenty two years, Jumping Jenny has made everything that it sells, except the bread, which comes from the wonderful ‘More Bakery’ (and if I knew how to set up that link, I would do…).
We are often asked whether our Sticky Toffee Pudding is supplied by Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding Company (whose link I am not putting up!). IT IS NOT! It is our own product, and usually voted ‘the best’.
As to supplying the recipes, (particularly for the acclaimed Tarte au Citron and Caramel Shortbread, maybe even the Lasagne or Moussaka, or the soup) I am sorry, but you will have to wait for the Jumping Jenny Cookbook – with accompanying app and video – to be published soon. In the book, there will be full details of baking technique – which, to be frank, is the ‘vital ingredient’ – just a recipe with ingredients is only half the story.
Watch this space!
The spectacular Rhododendron Bush in the grounds of Brantwood is now at its best and definitely worth a visit.
Why not combine your visit with lunch first at Jumping Jenny or pop in for a cuppa and a piece of cake from our delicious selection.
We look forward to seeing you.
What a week! Months ago, to our great delight, we were approached by the publishers of the Great Cake Places book, with the invitation to have Jumping Jenny included in the Great Cake Places in Britain book, which is shortly to be printed.
So, until the book is published, we have to bask in the glory of being one of only 12 “cake places” in the North West. Surprisingly, the “North West” is defined as being North West of Stafford, which is quite a large area!
After 22 years in business at Jumping Jenny, this is an enormous accolade, so thank you, Jennifer Earle, for your persistence.
So, despite the recession, cold weather, and Easter being earlier this year than last year, the four days’ trading over the weekend produced a gross take a few pounds more than the four days of Easter last year! Thank you to all our customers… . Enjoy the rest of the Easter week – although temperatures are no going to be high, there is bright sunshine on the forecast for the next two days. Enjoy!
