Raymond Blanc and British Apples and Pears create Jubilee celebration cake

On the first weekend of June, the Queen will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, marking an incredible 70 years on the throne.

With the highly anticipated four-day bank holiday weekend, many will be planning celebrations with family and friends and cooking up an array of dishes to impress their guests.

British Apples and Pears (BAPL) have partnered with renowned celebrity chef, Raymond Blanc, to create a showstopping British apple mousse Jubilee celebration cake which rightly champions Britain’s national fruit – the apple.

Both want to encourage the nation to try their hand at this impressive celebratory cake, whether at a Jubilee lunch or a local street party. This cake is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser, making it the perfect centrepiece for any celebration.

The Jubilee celebration cake incorporates three delicious varieties of British apples: English Bramley, Lilibet* and Royal Gala. English Bramleys and Royal Gala can be found in British supermarkets, Lilibet is a little harder to find, but you can easily substitute Lilibet with any other British eating apple.

Commenting on the recipe development, Raymond Blanc said, “I am very proud to be part of this historical event, partnering with British Apples and Pears to celebrate the delicious taste and versatility of our national fruit.

“Britain produces some of the finest apples in the world, and I believe this spectacular recipe is the perfect showcase for this wonderful fruit. With the vibrant red colour of the Royal Gala apple, the uniquely sweet flavour of Lilibet apples and the cloud-like fluffiness of cooked Bramley apples, the cake truly brings out the best of British apples.

“Food is at the heart of any celebration, bringing close family and friends together, and this remarkable cake will be sure to impress and delight your guests”.

Ali Capper, Executive Chair of British Apples and Pears, said, “We are proud to share Raymond’s delicious British apple mousse cake recipe for everyone to make and enjoy. Apples are our national fruit, and no Jubilee celebration should be without them.”
