A recipe book written by guesthouse owner Sally Lunson has raised more than £900 for Keswick mountain rescue team.
Sally and her husband Keith have been baking up a storm for the last six years, making cakes for their guests at Glencoe Guest House on Helvellyn Street with proceeds donated to the rescue team.
Now all their recipes have been put into the book, Bakes from the Lakes, which guests can buy.
Since the couple came to the guesthouse in 2014 they have been producing a homemade cake each day and visitors could enjoy a slice in exchange for a donation to the team.
It was warmly welcomed, with guests even suggesting their own top tips to vary the recipes.
The plan was always to produce a recipe book of all the cakes, so more money could be raised for the charity, and after several hours of baking, photography, graphic designing and editing, Bakes from the Lakes has now been produced.
Each recipe comes with a full-page colour photo, clear instructions and top tips and many of the recipes can be adapted for a gluten free diet too.
The book includes old favourites including Victoria sponge, banana and chocolate chip, as well as the couple’s daughter Vicky’s favourite, carrot cake.
Sally said: “Having paid the cost of printing ourselves, all proceeds from the sale will go to KMRT who will have fewer donations this year from around the town due to the COVID lockdown.”
It is available for sale from Glencoe Guesthouse at £8.99 and can be posted for an additional fee of £2.
